8th February 2020 Weekend Challenge Aesthetically Appealing.
“Never lose an opportunity of seeing anything beautiful, for beauty is God’s handwriting.” ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson.
This weekend the Weekly Prompts weekend challenge from GC and me is ‘Aesthetically Appealing.’
My usual route to the supermarket is the scenic route; it takes me along a winding lane where I pass the west end of one of the airport runways. I enjoy driving on this road and I never fail to feel the exhilarating thrill at the sight of a plane lifting off from the runway and appearing above and ahead of me.
On a frosty December morning, I set off for the supermarket and knowing there were a couple of planes due for a 9:30 AM take-off, on impulse I took a right turn and parked the car a little way up a hillside track opposite the runway.
I watched the planes take off and just as I was about to get back into the car I noticed the mist rising off the fields next to me. I stood still, and for a few moments I was captivated by the beauty that surrounded me. I watched the horses grazing in the distance, the sheep in the foreground, and the hard frost with the mist rising, the view brought to mind a landscape painting.
As I took out my phone to capture these aesthetically pleasing images, I imagined how the scene before me might look had it been the subject of a Constable or Gainsborough.
