And very nice it is too
Chris: You didn't say that at the time did you - puff..pant..gasp..
I like the framing here Chris placing the cottage and boat in the gap. Sure looks a lovely place with plenty photographic opportunities .
Chris: This is Porlock weir in Somerset Scotia. I had the pleasure of staying there recently with Chad, Bill & Richard Trim

I like the way that your horizon is straight Tiff. You know how important that is to me.
Chris: I am always prepared to be flexible Chad; in other words mess it up, as you would have done..

a wonderfully framed photo taken from an upper point of view -this is the best photo I have ever seen from the stooges' trip to Somerset.
Chris: I took my better camera, my Sony NEX-7, with me to try to capture this sort of fine scenery Philine. We were blessed by fine and agreeable weather

Good fro you for climbing a tree to show us the scene. I you returned to ground safely.
Chris: Yes I did, W J Phillips of Droitwich-Under-water stood beneath me to act as a cushion just in case I slipped and risked my boyish good looks and classic athletic frame

Opps.. well, hopefully you can work out what I was trying to say.
Chris: Indeed I can, and I hope you can decode every nuance of my answer

What a fine looking spot. Relieved to see that the world isn't titling after all and that we won't slide off the edge as Chad's photo suggested.
Chris: I feel I need to be tethered to something solid when looking at Chad's horizons..
That's a great view, Chris. Did you climb Porlock Hill?
Chris: We drove up it Pauline but walked up to Culbone church
Wonderfully framed, Chris. Is this from the hill you walked up or from your hotel?
Chris: Yes it is Mary, in wonderful weather
and I absolutely love it Chris..the tree stems makes it all
Chris: Thank you kindly Ronky
A beautiful view Chris, and would I be right in thinking one member of your party missed this because he was laying on the ground almost gasping his last!
Chris: Almost Brian but this was at the start of the walk

That looks idyllic Chris, blue skies too - what luxury smile
Chris: It really was Anne, lovely location and weather, good company
Is that a scrap yard down there? Spoils the view a bit! smile
Chris: Oh dear, I will go back and check - sometime..
A fine view Chris and nicely framed by the tree. Quite unusual to see the channel looking so blue!
Chris: I was like that for THREE WHOLE DAYS!

The bio-filter works very well here, Chris.
Chris: It does indeed
