Remember the postcard swap I spoke of a few weeks back? Well I did it and I feel so supremely sorry for my recipient. I’m a terrible drawer, let alone when I have to hold the pen between my pointer and birdie and not use my thumb!! Here’s the view I drew:
It is in the Brecon Beacons National Park in Wales. Where places have the coolest names. This was taken about half way up Craig y Cilau (which is part of the Mynydd Llangatwg escarpment) overlooking the villages Llangattock and Llangatwg and the greater Usk Valley. A seriously beautiful part of the world*.
Many many many other beautiful parts of the world were capture by many many more talented artists. If you have a spare minute, go check out the flickr pool. Looking at them can serve of a reminder to enjoy life, and notice the small things…
* a very beautiful part of the world only about 3.5 hours from London that I’m keen to return to when I get some spare time. Great for outdoor activities (including lazing around I imagine!!), I spent a really restful weekend there doing the following two walks
- the Craig y Cilau and Llangattock walk (pictured above). A mid level 5.5mile walk with some decent incline
- A a walk around Mynydd Llangorse, also 5.5miles again with some incline.
