Much as I enjoy living on the doorstep of two of the UK’s major cities, Manchester and Liverpool, I’m lucky to have some wonderful countryside within a stone’s throw as well. There’s a wonderful purity and simplicity that comes with spending time in the outdoors that simply can’t be found in the city, which is why I’ve chosen this photo from back in November of last year as my contribution to this week’s photo challenge.
Taken on a ridiculously foggy day at sea level, this photo just goes to show how different the weather can be above the clouds; indeed, it was stunning!
I’ve written before about how spending time in nature, at pure and peaceful places such as this, is something that helps me to clear my thoughts and deal with the stresses of life. I think this photo sums that up perfectly.
