This week’s photo challenge from Frank (his fab Blog is “Dutch Goes The Photo”) is WOODS
A month or so ago, I took my music-loving, 92-year-old neighbour, Eva, to visit Leith Hill Place, childhood home of Ralph Vaughan Williams. Set in the beautiful Surrey Hills, at the foot of woodland, this house is a step back in time, full of musical history and a haven from our crazy modern world.
Eva loved it. She recalled seeing RVW around Dorking (our home town) when she was younger; he sported a too long jumper and dishevelled hair!! Nonetheless, an amazing man who produced some breath-taking music, including the beautifully evocative “The Lark Ascending”.
My photos show a stunning tree with the most photogenic roots, beautifully set off by some recent rain ……… and a glimpse of Leith Hill Place, itself.
