In Love or A Chipping Idiot

Curbar In Love

Hi all and firstly what a great Monday, sun shining, birds singing, done a walk with Stormy already 6am so she’s happy eating her dinner now.

Bit of a rant for this mornings blog although I must admit to being a little impressed too.

Yesterday we had a fab walk with friends Mark and Karen and of course Stormy too, we walked from Curbar Edge car park along to Froggatt Edge and back, a decent few hour walk especially as I was taking shots constantly. Met some lovely people, naturally Stormy was the star of the show taking her fame in her stride, not bad for a 10 month old is it?. (I’m jealous)

Anyway high up on one of the cliffs I came across this chipping declaring 7 years in love. Now I am a romantic at heart, or at least I like to think so but and its a big BUT why oh why would you want to vandelise such a prominent piece of our natural landscape with your undying love, bet their not even together anymore!

It is beautifully done and must have taken ages and lets face it I bet their partner was very impressed once he/she got over the shock of seeing this eye sore in such a beautiful setting. I know its given me a blog piece and I have taken shots as many other photographers have, but I still think it would be better not done here.

More to follow later, have a great day.

    lol …..what happens if they change partners? Glad you had a good outing on Sunday….. I myself went for a spectacular 15km hike and if you like I’ll send you the link to my Picasa album because I think you’d enjoy the scenery
    (I’m afraid they’re only snap shots though)
