Derbyshire Textures


Posted by Picasa


We had a slight change of plan last weekend and, instead of going to stay with my DSD (who had mixed up the dates for our visit), decided to spend a few days in the Peak District. I used to spend a lot of time in Derbyshire but hadn't been back for many years. We spent a lovely weekend in a rented cottage in the village of Taddington, just outside Buxton.

The weekend was spent visiting one or two of the local towns and then on Sunday we had a lovely walk along Miller's Dale, one of the many beautiful Dales in the Peak District. While I concentrated on taking photos of textures my DH took the view shots and I have included a couple of links above to his blog. He will no doubt be including more photographs over the next day or two so I shall be lazy this time and suggest that you might like to look in at his blog for his story of the weekend.

Lovely texture montage, Julie, very inspirational. you certainly do go to some great places, no wonder you produce such varied work with all this inspiration to draw from.

I love seeing the places you visit Julie and where some of your inspiration for your lovely art comes from.

You live in a beautiful part of the world (a place I want to visit one day).

Derbyshire is very beautiful, and extra special to me because Dad was born there. I've only been once, but would love to go again one day! Carolyn :o)
