Glyndebourne skies

A few years ago, before I became a scientist, I sometimes worked here:



This is the sky over Glyndebourne in May (and before the Opera season starts - hence all lawns are deserted). When I think of nice English spring weather then these genteel clouds spring to (my) mind first.

What a magnificent photo! Looks like a painting! And it looks very English - you ARE known for your wonderful lawns. :)
The gardener who manage the green on the golfcourse I play on, is from England. It figures!

And the sky is so nice - no rain in those clouds!

Picture perfect Bim! Absolute in its excellence! That is over the top comment I have made I think.
The green landscape to a well-manicured lawn, the immaculate white clouds look like angels watching over you; blue sky and the afternoon shadow to compliment the frame. This picture tells the mind of the artist who capture this so well! That's enough Me. Really, I mean it with all my heart. :)

Please check out my new blog. You'll come in a nice surprise. Just wait!
