INFOCUS Sat May 12


This weeks selection for INFOCUS (our Theme being The Sky's the Limit) is from Sue Taylor (you can see her other work HERE )
Sue discribes her image :

TSTL. Tolkien Country

When J.R. Tolkien was writing "Lord of the Rings" he spent time with the Elmhursts at Dartington Hall just down the road here. He took daily walks in the area and loved the little hillocks we have dotted everywhere (one of which you can see here). So much so that he based the topography of his "Middle Earth" upon them. Now you Know. Cool sky too this afternoon.

Congrats! being selected this week Sue. Please continue to inspire us as you post with us in our Flickr pool.

Sue - This is spectacular both ways - and what a gorgeous place to live! I thought of Bilbo as soon as I saw it - you can sure see the influence! Great Job!
