We live in a countryside town called Ilkley. Ilkley is very beautiful. Right now, nature is going crazy with the arrival of spring and it is very colourful.
Spring is also taking place not too many miles away but this time the remote kind of countryside. This spring landscape isn’t so obvious. Apart from very small lambs and the trees becoming that fresh limey green again, there is little differentiating colour.
Spring here has a colour palette of a different kind. It is browns, creams, greys and greens. On a dull day like the one I took these pictures, you may even say it was drab. Yet seen through different eyes it is very beautiful; it just as magical as the spring of brighter colours. It is quiet, not ‘showy’, doesn’t demand attention and is extremely relaxing to be around, it is soul food. For the duration of my time there, it was mine and I its.
