  1. That is quite some heavy clouds coming in over Attingham Park. There is something ominous about the whole scenery and in particular the light. It might be a perfect storming coming in?

    It maybe a calm after the storm…

  3. Mats says:

    Some heavy clouds there, nice! Good photo.

  4. Ginnie says:

    I see a patch of snow and a patch of blue. It doesn’t get better for me in winter time, Cherry.

    Now I’m wondering what “It” refers to in the quote: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Emerald_Tablet .

    Snow in the distance appropriate for today as it feels so cold.

    One of the stranger ones, Cherie.

      It is very strange, but very interesting to consider the what the text actually means. There are so many different interpretations. I have my own, as I know you will too ;-)

    i wish i had a window with this view …. especially on a gloomy day …

  8. Ellee says:

    Hope you missed any downpour with those heavy clouds overhead.

      It had snowed, which is why I rushed out to take photos. The snow clouds were receding into the distance. It was a perfect time for getting interesting photographs.

    We went to Attingham on Saturday, it was lovely if a little chilly in the wind. I enjoyed seeing the first of the snowdrops…great pic Cherie and I wouldn’t be surprised to see a little more white stuff ~ be it frost or snow :)

    And I was close to think it was a she. If at all. :)

  11. Sean Jeating says:

    ha ha ha … And the peace of the night to you, CherryPie.
