photoblog image Arley Arboretum 3/4

Arley Arboretum 3/4

2009 Retrospective - I had a number of images I took last year that I would have liked to have posted on SC but time didn't allow.  For the time being I am posting a number of these, in no particular order, which I hope you will enjoy.

After visiting Bill at the Clent Hills last spring we went on to Arley Arboretum in the Severn valley the following day.

This was taken looking out from the Arboretum towards the village of Arley, and the buildings right of centre are at the station of the same name on the Severn Valley Railway.  To go with the picture is what I feel is a very appropriate piece of music.

Oh, I love that piece of music, Brian. It brings back memories...and some tears...of my choir days! It's indeed perfect for this image!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Ginnie. I have a 3-week series of English churches, each with a piece of choral music attached, coming up in April, perhaps there will be some music you know in there also.

This is charming Brian. I've only passed Arley on the railway & never stopped.
Yesterday I saw Tornado lift 13 coaches up the steep bank from Westbury to Warminster with consummate ease.

Brian Walbey: Thanks and thanks for the link Chris, a great sight. Tornado is at Loughborough in March and I will make sure to get down there, i have seen it before but not in action.
This is very lovely Brian.
Brian Walbey: Yes it is Chad, thanks very much.
The music goes so well with the image, calm and peaceful.
Brian Walbey: It was so quiet there that day Linda and I felt the music matched the mood.
An idyllic spot, Brian.
Brian Walbey: It is indeed Tom, thanks for your comment.
A nice part of the country Brian, and the red of the tree on the left lifts the composition just right. Hope to be in Arley in a couple of weeks for the SVR Steam Gala.
Brian Walbey: It is a lovely part of the country Les, and the SVR adds the finishig touch.
What a lovely sight Brian. I love the lush green!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Richard, it is a lovely area altogether.

Lovely view, Brian, and as you say an appropriate piece of music. Am I right in thinking that Severn Valley line went on up to Coalport and Ironbridge? I've got friends staying in the converted railway carriages at Coalport this week.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Alan. You are right about the route of the SVR, read about half-way down the page here http://www.svr.co.uk/history.php
Very pretty shot, Brian.
Brian Walbey: Many thanks Mary.
I would love this as my garden..what a view too. Lovely picture Brian.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Ron, it is a lovely view as you say.
lovely little pond and a beautiful landscape! I think the water looks a bit stagnant with all the overgrowth but that really adds to the scene grin
Brian Walbey: The whole area round ARley is beautiful Charles, thanks for your comment.
Lovely scene Brian and you are right about the music
Brian Walbey: Thanks Bill.
Great! The colours, the view, the framing! Well done! The red tree on the left is fantastic!
Brian Walbey: Many thanks RS.
beauitiful country landscape Brian, you have framed things very carefully and it shows. You eye starts at the flowers on the bottom and then moves towards the shed..kid of thing and then the lake and then beyond. very nice...
Brian Walbey: Thanks Ryan, this is a lovely area of our country.
