How not to be romanced by the land, a fecund slice of the rawness that still exists and the beauty that it holds as it spellbinds one who comes along at the right moment, yet cannot explain the deep loyalty to soil and land. Like

This is the kind of scene - and elements I am sure were there - that make me feel so keenly alive!

About Cowgazer

Cowgazer

I am Peter, brought up in the center of Manchester, UK. But was a square peg in a round hole there, worked 33 years as stockman in dairy farming then made redundant. Luckily got a job managing a garden nursery for a couple of years, but had to leave as tenancy came to an end. Couldn't find work so relocated to Wales and am now a self-employed gardener, great move, good things come out of hard times. Digital tech has made photography affordable to me and I love it, compliments my walking and Birdwatching. At present on a steep learning curve, new things are always good, stretch your mind and keep you sane-ish.
