This is a most impressive scene, Chris!

Interesting landscape with the swirl in the road and the person for perspective.
Chris: Thank you Beth, this countryside has deep valleys and flat topped hills
Jolie vue d'ensemble !
Chris: Thank you Martine
A lovely landscape!
Chris: All local to me between Bath and Bristol Elizabeth

I have to google the word 'wait'- I see there some green in the foreground.
Chris: The person in the picture is waiting Philine. She is a marshall for a cross country race..

This looks local, but I can't place it, Chris?
Chris: Behind me is North Stoke church Lisl. The valley on the far side leads down to Upton Cheyney
It's almost like she's standing on the fence/gate, Chris, to get a better view while waiting.
Chris: She is waiting to direct cross country runners Ginnie
Au milieu de rien , quel environnement !
Chris: Yes indeed, out in the countryside..

Beautiful scene here, Chris. I love those trees on the left side on top of the hill.
I hope the person knows by now there is no car coming to pick him up...
Chris: There are no cars up here Astrid; she is a marshall for a cross country race

The wait for what, though? It's a fine landscape especially seen in the low winter sunlight.
Chris: Waiting for runners to come down the hill in an attempt to kill themselves with over exertion

A boring job I should think Tiff.
Chris: Hopefully for any a few minutes as the participants flash by Chad
A pleasing scene with the person adding interest
Chris: Without the person, no interest..

Are you waiting for her, or waiting for your breath? Lovely scene.
Chris: Drinking coffee and looking at the scenery Louis. And watching her direct the racers..
Beautiful light Chris......looks a great area to walk smile
Chris: Very much so Martin, the south of the Cotswolds
The little group of hobbit houses is unique, I suspect.
Chris: They might be outbuildings to a larger house Mary..
And who wouldn't mind waiting in such lovely countryside.
Chris: Only a mile to go before I was on top of the hill..

Rural bus services are on decline.
Chris: So are pubs, shops, church attendance..

Chris: I understand what you mean Peter
