As this website becomes more & more international, it becomes increasingly obvious that we are all living in completely different environments, time zones, climate regions, hemispheres, etc etc.

So I thought it might be fun if we each posted a photo of the view we have from our window, as we sit at home playing our Irish Music.

 

My own view is a fairly typical one of Irish countryside, with fields of green grass, hedges & hills. However, I have no doubt that others may well look out on rather different scenery.

 

So here's the challange, all you need to do is post a photo of your favourite view, from the window in your house which you site next to, or near, when you are playing your Irish Music. Let's see just how varied our landscapes really are. I've every confidence we'll end up with some gorgeous views of Tundra, Ice Wilderness, City, Village, Mighty Forests, Sea Cliffs, Deserts etc etc

 

N.B. Obviously, one should take great care when posting any photo here, that it doesn't reveal your exact location, so younger members may be excused from this exercise, unless they are 100% confident that their view could not possibly be traced.

 

Anyway, to kick the whole thing off, here's the view from my back window, up here on the Causeway Coast of North Antrim. Not very spectacular I know, but let's keep them coming & .... prepare to be dazzled! 8-)

Side  Window: with the Sperrins on the horizon.

"small population of 80,000"

Hey Niklas, my nearest settlement, 2 miles away, has a population of just over 400! ;-)

Speaking of monuments, a little closer than that is this, our local Round Tower.

N.B. ... we live on that hill, in the background.

Cheers, Dick

The green groves of Hovshaga, Wexio

WOW!

Is that castle from the C12th?

By the way Niklas, where have all the Swedish Mountains gone? ;-)

Here's some mountains, or maybe cliffs.. Kullaberg Skane, the place where i met Hasse, piper in Cuts and Crans for the first time a lot of years ago :)

Those aren't Cliffs Lars .. These are Cliffs: Moher

N.B. Watch closely at 7 seconds! ;-)

Yeah, 26 metres higher than Kullaberg, big whoop ; )

 

Let's blame the vikings when they put these types of stones in our landscape that caused the extermination of our mountains in southern Sweden.  ;-)

 

Anyway, we got lots of mountains left in northen of Sweden. This one is called Kebnekaise and is said to be 2,011 m  =)

I think that the castle was originally built in the C14th by a bishop as shelter against the danes.

Brilliant stone carvings there Niklas & that sure is one desolate looking mountain.

Ed, that scene in Arizona looks waterless (he said drily).

In eastern Oklahoma, on a hill near the town of Heavener, there is a huge stone which supposedly has Old Norse Runes carved on its side. My wife and I have been there and looked at it but we couldn't tell if it was the real thing or a hoax.

So many nice and different locaitons and landscapes. I can see some very inspiring places !

I was late to catch up, but here are my views respectively from my garden in winter, and a picture from my front porch in summer.

Cheers,

Pascal.
