Oh Bill, this is a magical place. The rolling hills, valleys, sheep, and trees are so expressive and lush in your photograph.

This matches what I imagine the English countryside to look like. Nice!
Bill Phillips: It is one of my favourite parts. The beauty of the British Countryside is the huge variety in such a small Island.
This is why I could never live anywhere but Enland, no matter how much I might moan about the state of the country, politically. So beautiful. (:o)
Bill Phillips: I couldn't agree more. I suppose we get the Politicians we deserve.
EnGland, I meant EnGland! Having trouble co-ordinating mind and hands. Sigh!

If not for the weak dollar, I would be here in no time. I hope the river is full of trout, so I can swing my flies.

Bill Phillips: Not being an Angler I don't know about the trout, but it could be interesting seeing you swing your flies;D
What a beauty. richard
Bill Phillips: Thanks Richard.

Bill Phillips: Thanks very much Tim. I make a pretty good Yorkshire pud. Not these puffy things mind, one with a bit of substance to fill 'em up!
Ah the settle Carlisle railway - recall a very wet afternoon in Bent. Beautiful when the sun does shine. Great photo. Mike
Bill Phillips: Thanks Mike. This and the NYM railway take a bit of beating. Mind the Severn Valley isn't bad.

Thanks for the memory Bill, while I was in the UK I travelled everywhere by train or bus. You have captured this scene perfectly.
Bill Phillips: Thanks Aussie. Our trains may be dirty, unreliable and slow but they go through some wonderful places!
England's Green and Pleasant Land! The Settle and Carlisle line is one I really want to travel on - I've heard its one of the best? Mike
Bill Phillips: It is a delight Mike. They had just re-painted Settle Station when we were there and it was beautiful. We went on a normal service and just enjoyed the view!
