love the top one (I'm a sucka for gates and doorways) and was feeling seriously homesick until I realised it was Derbyshire not Yorkshire...

OJ says:

Thanks Gael. It's actually near Chelmorton in the white peak so as near as dammit to Yorkshire. That gate was magic - looked like it just led to the navy blue sky....

Happy New Year all....

I'm making the magic open gate my emblem for the turning of the year. Wide blue yonder and all that...

I dream of living somewhere with a view like that...ever since I first saw International Velvet and fell in love with the area...

Damn me and my living in the US and fear of flying!

If it wasn't for the fact that I knew that was in the UK, I could have easily mistaken that for home.

(Home being oregon)

Dry stone walls and all Kostika? *makes mental note to go to Oregon*

More scenic pics of the - frequently damp - Peak District to be found by clicking on the "Peak District" tag above. Or this handy linkette.

I'm not sure that set of pics is exactly representative of the area melissaamy, some parts are quite rugged - the magic valley (as I now call it) was quite shallow and gave a feeling of enclosure.

Lovely views - seems quite isolated thou!

OJ says:

Not really isolated, you're within an easy drive of Manchester, Sheffield, Stockport, Cheshire etc. etc. here.

Remote is good though. Am still considering Outer Hebrides as a summer holiday location. (Ahem, or Corsica for warmth)

crickson says:

Yeah, I'd like to go to the Outer Hebrides just to say I've been...

melissaamy says:

oh where in oregon? I have been there many times, but never found anything like this before. Also, I lived in VT and have found close, but it is just not quite the same, yet in many things I have seen of the UK, I see it there...maybe it is just my blinding love of the UK that has me only needing to be there to see it! hehe...
