Near Whipsnade on the National Trust managed Chilterns downland, the sheep make use of the shade.

Beautiful landscape John.... the cows under the tree and the texture in the freshly cut fields makese it just perfect....well done....petersmile
John Prior: Them cows be sheep Peter, although we breed them big here. Autumn landscapes are often my favourites, thank you for commenting.
A lovely place to wander about. I like how the tree lines divide up the land.
John Prior: Thank you Jacquelyn, it is a great place to walk, people use these downs for gliders, hang-gliders and paragliding as well as model planes and kites.

Mixed feelings at this time John. Beautiful days, cooler winds, harvest gathered in, work done, winter next.
John Prior: I like proper seasons Chad, they all have a lot to offer, only the grey wet dismal days get me down when we get too many of them.
A beautiful picture John. Wonderful to look at.
John Prior: Thanks Frances, I enjoy the feeling of warmth from your Spanish landscapes on these colder days.

This is gorgeous John. I recognize both the place and the season with no difficulty whatever
John Prior: Thanks Chris, very close to a handy car park on Bison hill, that is never as busy as the one near the National Trust visitor centre further towards Dunstable and free for non-members also.

We talked about you while we were in England this past weekend, John. You're one of my favorite "pure" photographers. smile
John Prior: That is very kind Ginnie, I've always enjoyed being out and about with a camera and the sort of communion with things seen it gives, I hope that does not sound pretentious.
