We’ve experienced some really wild rather over the past week, from heavy rain to high winds; temperatures in the teens to below 5 degrees.
But one thing the weather makes you realise is just how amazing the place where we live is. Having been born and brought up in Montgomeryshire we are almost naturally immune to the majestic landscape, rolling hills and lush countryside.
Each day we drive through stunning valleys and down winding roads, but most of the time we completely ignore the view we have because it’s a view we see each and every day.
It’s only when a visiting friend of holidaymaker tells you what an amazing place you live and how lucky you are that you et your head out of the ground and take a look, realising that they are so right.
I sit here in my office looking out towards our week every day, just as I am now writing this post. But it’s only occasionally that I actually sit and look and think “this is an amazing view.”
Two weeks ago I was driving between the neighbouring hamlet and the next town when I looked out from the car across the valley and saw this amazing view. This is just the reason I carry a camera with me whenever – and not just the phone camera.
The view looks out towards the neighbouring hills across the Severn Valley. It was just as a storm was brewing and whole there was plenty of light, the moody clouds were moving in.
