Lovely Views

We have had some lovely weather lately, although it is definitely feeling quite autumnal, especially in the evenings, the nights are really drawing in. I do like this time of year though, its nice to snuggle up in bed early with a good book, something I dont seem to do in the summer months. Anyway, to take advantage of this lovely weather (and also to have a practice with my new camera!) I went up to our local beauty spot. It is called The viewpoint, and offers the most spectacular views overlooking Poole Habour. This is looking out towards Old Harry Rocks, you can see between Old Harry and the tops of the trees is the Sandbanks Peninsula. Oh boy! We do live in a most beautiful part of the world! Sandbanks is reputed to be one of the most expensive places for property in the world!This picture is looking staight across the water towards the Purbeck Hills. Just in the middle on the right is Brownsea Island, home of the rapidly declining red squirrel.I think this view is looking towards Brownsea Island, again with the Purbecks in the background.

If you look closely you can just make out Corfe Castle sitting between the two hills slightly centre left in the background. (If you right click it should bring the picture up bigger.)In the foreground is Poole Park lake with Baiter just beyond.

Hopefully if this weather holds out, I can get to the allotment tomorrow, fingers crossed.

Lovely pictures yet again, tattyanne. I see this view once or twice every day when I walk Wrecks the dog and I suppose I take it for granted and I shouldn't. BW Goosey

Thanks for your comments Tattyanne,

I’m no vegetarian but sometimes the meat does become the side dish to the veg.

Nice blog yourself there, I’m really bad when it comes to remembering the camera. These are fantastic pictures.

I have linked you in my blog roll; perhaps you would do the same, its helps with the exposure. Sometimes you wonder if anybody reads this. (Apart from my parents and a few friends). It always encourages getting a comment.

Regards,

CFF
