What She Was Seeing

Wuthering Heights, Jane Eyre, The Secret Garden … so many of us grew up reading about the Moors of Yorkshire.

Several of these shots were taken from the car as we drove.

“I never expected it to be so hilly,” she said as the wind hit her hair, blowing it about her face. She paused for a moment, looking around, inhaling. “So beautiful.”

I think I’ll leave this one at that.
