The area around Priddy on the Mendip Hills is one of my favourite small places in the world.  I spent a lot of time there as a kid, and I always go back to visit when I have the chance.

The Mendips are not grand or stunning in any major way - but they do have sense of place and scale that I really like.

This single tree is a bit of a photographic icon in the area - I tried to do something that does not look like all my other pictures.

You can find more shots from around the world at Our World Tuesday.

By the time this post goes live I will be on the second day of a long walk in Tasmania - with not a hint of internet!   Cheers  SM

    Lone trees have a power, don't they? Gorgeous vistas! YAM xx

  2. The blue skies made me think you were talking about Australia at first. Glad the scenery is still beautiful enough to bring back happy childhood memories.

  3. Amazing landscape ! Nature and just Nature.

  4. I love that single tree. It looks like the lone Cypress in California on the coast.. A very natural landscape. Wonderful pictures

  5. Is Priddy a play on 'pretty'?

    whatever, it's bootiful

  6. The tree photo is perfect as you have done it.

  7. It looks so very much like areas in California! Love the second shot!
