England: Back in the Cotswolds I take a long hike along the Shakespears Way, enjoying the magnificent views of the countryside.

Hi Anita, Shakespear was born in Stratford-upon-Avon, and the Shakespear Way walk starts there and goes for about 150 miles to the Globe theatre in London where he played....some hike! and needless to say I didn't have the time or energy to complete it! So if you want to visit England and you want a challenge, that walk would be perfect! I guess you would need about two weeks bearing in mind that it passes by some very tempting pubs!

Hello Gringo, so nice to hear from you on my blog! I keep an eye on your beautiful and interesting pictures even though I seldom comment. Your "world" is so different than ours. At least on the outside :) I love to visit.

Kisses,
Emma Rose

Believe it or not that picture reminds my mom of some parts of Iowa, where her family is from. She says thanks for posting it today. :)

WOofs and Licks,

Gringo, this is a beautiful landscape. And there is a depth in this picture. Great photo!!!...

By the way, I have learned from you to carry always with me a camera. I already missed so many interesting shots.

Gringo, it's me again. I think I figured out what gives a depth to this photo. The sky. It takes only 1/3 of the whole picture. And you see so clear the horizon. Amazing.

The English countryside is beautiful with its enchanting landscapes

Kaya: Thank you again for your comments. There is something called the 'rule of thirds', which I remember from my younger days when I was learning photography, so I try and stick to one third for the sky....unless there is something interesting in the sky itself.
