Nice photo, looks a bit ominous on the horizon.


Comment by Alan (Vancouver Island) on 8th February 2015 at 01:36
This pastural scene made me immediately think of Johann Sebastian Bach's wonderful melody "Sheep may safely graze".

Keep 'em coming, Rev.

Castellis Farm, Peter Castelli used to delivery our milk on his horse and cart, sometimes he used to let me sit up front and drive the horse.

At one time you used to be able to see Ashurst beacons beacon from all over but now its hard to see because of the growing trees.

Alan (Vancouver Island); Look at Rev David`s 30th Jan.`15 Photo-a Day and read the comments.


Comment by Rev David Long on 8th February 2015 at 12:23
Mick - Ashurst Beacon was just visible on the original of this - Brian has obviously had to crop it to fit his format.
Ernest - you're correct in assuming this is the pic I took on January 30th, the day the pic of the sheep seen from another angle, appeared here.
Thanks for the comments today and yesterday.

Very nice shot, Rev.

Rev. David,
You did say on the 30th Jan. that you would attempt a photo with the snow, well you have done, but only just. Like it though.

The scene was a bit different in the late 1940's it was an opencast coal mining site.At that time both sides of Arbour Lane were being mined as the back of our house was hit more than once with rocks from the blasting.
Mick, i had the same pleasure driving the milk float occasionly,
Peter Castelli was my dad's best man at his wedding.

Phil, who was the Robin Hill Drift manager that used to live on Arbour Lane at the bottom of the hill where the lane became flat?
