No problem, Lucky. Earthshots potd is my perfect escape from my own reality. You continue to be Peter Pan, and I’ll be Wendy, and we’ll both be able to enjoy this wonderful world in our own way. Today’s shot could be Lilliput–a tiny world in a crevice of moss. Thank God for diversity!

The dales are either green like this or white with snow but always lovely.

Amazing light that isn’t always on tap in the Lakes (a lot of rain and mist when I have been there). A photographers dream landscape though and a great place to stop for lunch after all the trudging to get up there. Great shot.

I almost expect Frodo and Sam to be walking down the road! Nice shot!

Striking setting! I love the patterns in the moss.

So serene. I wonder if the people who live there REALLY know the power of the beauty in which they are surrounded. Bet it would also make for a good fall and winter shot…. Absolutely pristine. Good eye, thank you for sharing.

Thank you ever so much for such generous and wonderful comments…I’m delighted and overwhelmed. Be even happier if that immature little nurd Lucky just would just disappear.
