This was our bedroom's room-with-a-view while in England.

You can hardly beat that!

Wow! What an amazing view, and a beautiful photo! This would make a wonderful print. Love it!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Peter, for stopping by and commenting!
Your English host was very kind to you Ginnie to give you such a beautiful view... great framing....pardon the pungrin....petersmile
Ginnie Hart: Our English host knew exactly what he was doing, Peter. We were royalty for several days in a row at that wonderful farmstead!
Definitely a beautiful view. What a lovely way to wake up each morning to. Really like the framing and perfect exposure for this image Ginnie. Great capture!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, John. I still remember it as though it were yesterday. smile

Sweet dreams in this room, I could live with a room with a view like that.
Wonderful picture, it shows the peace and quiet.
Ginnie Hart: No wonder we slept so well, MLMA! When we turned the lights out, it was pitch black. I'll never forget it. Hartstikke bedankt.
Superbly composed. Nice shot.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, KWB. By the way, are you no longer blogging? I can't seem to find you....
Can't beat the view and that shot is glorious. What great light and composition.
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Michael. I still have such fond memories of this window and view!

a very proper looking room and what a peaceful, pastoral view - I can imagine this wonderful holydays atmosphere you could enjoy in Chris's and Jackie's little paradise!
Ginnie Hart: Yes, indeed, Philine. Exactly! I still remember it as though it were yesterday. Hartstikke bedankt.

I hoped you'd like it Ginnie but felt quite sure you would!
Ginnie Hart: Oh yes, Chris. MORE than liked it. THANK YOU.
When you wake up to a view like this life seems very good.
Ginnie Hart: You've got that right, Bill!

Beautifully taken picture Ginnie, the light is perfect. I wake up to views very similar,but not through a lovely window like this one smile
Ginnie Hart: Lucky, lucky you, Linda! We'll never forget it. Thanks.
Such peace and tranquillity, what a view.
Ginnie Hart: Yes, indeed, Martin!

Wonderfully composed and presented Ginnie. I like the simple beauty of this.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you and thank you, Chad. This was such a good memory for us.
Looks like it came from an English novel.
Ginnie Hart: Indeed, Mary. I like that thought.
Not bad ;-)
Ginnie Hart: It'll do in a pinch, Richard, right?! smile
What a wonderful view to look at Ginnie. It would make the start of a day better.
Ginnie Hart: Yes, indeed, Frances. Thank you.

How lovely to wake up to this view smile
Ginnie Hart: Yes, Frida. We really were in heaven. smile
Lovely countryside view to wake up to Ginnie and I expect you got the dawn chorus too and maybe a cockeral (rooster) on the farm adding his sound effects. lol
Ginnie Hart: Now that you say it, Janet, I'm so surprised I heard no roosters. They do have chickens there. Hmmm. Now you've got me wondering. I'll have to ask Astrid. smile Thanks.
Oh what an outlook to see in the morning, we just look at the side of our garage.
Ginnie Hart: It's nice to get a change like this, Brian. We filled up our lings with it! smile
No indeed Ginne, Looks great.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, John.

It's far more attractive than the view for my townhouse, that's for sure! Good to see shutters on the window.
Ginnie Hart: The shutters were wonderful at night, Alan. But we opened them each morning right away! Thanks.

A very beautiful views and a splendid framing. Light is great. Good day Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Tede.
It's definitely... "A Room With A View"... oh I loved that movie too.
Ginnie Hart: Great movie, indeed, Jacquelyn. We do like our rooms with a view, don't we! smile
Wow, I love this picture... very nice picture!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Victoria.

Beautifully composed Ginnie...I just love it.

Definitely England but I wonder where? Anyway, have a nice weekend.
Ginnie Hart: This is in the countryside outside of Bath, George. I fell in love with the whole area, for miles around, let alone the city (my second time there). Thank you.
I certainly agree, this is hard to top for a view. Excellent shot.
Ginnie Hart: We felt very lucky for this view, Jimi. Thank you.
I love this shot Ginnie.... but where is the boat lol....petersmile
Ginnie Hart: Sometimes there are no Boat Fridays for me, Peter. HA! But truth be known, we were on a big ferry last evening (Friday) from the Dutch mainland to the island of Texel. So I really got my fill after all. smile

Nice view, was there an equal level of country sounds to go with the image
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Brian. To be honest, I have no memory of sounds except the quiet. Where we live there is traffic outside our bedroom window, so we have to keep our window shut at night.
That vase in the middle adds so much...
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Larry. I thought so too.
ça me donne l'envie de cueillir des fleurs
passe d'agréables moments et à bientôt
Ginnie Hart: Yes, L'angevine. Yes. Merci.
This is wonderful indeed. I bet you hanker for it already.
Ginnie Hart: Oh yes, Wim. Next year won't come fast enough. smile Bedankt.
The tiles and window panes complement each other beautifully, just as the lushness of the countryside presents a contrast to the spare architectural details. Simply lovely!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Linda. The simplicity of this view was so powerful for me!

This is astonishingly beautiful. My favorite image, period, in a long, long time. WOW. Won't you enter it in something, please?

And it was your view!
Ginnie Hart: Ruth, you are very generous. I hardly know what to say. Thank you. It was indeed our view! Thank you.
As usual you've made such a beautiful image here Ginnie! You're a thoughtful artist, unlike me just snapping away like a spaz afraid I'll miss something!!
Ginnie Hart: To be honest, Elizabeth, I often feel like I'm snapping away like a lunatic, hoping I won't miss something. You can see what I mean on my other blog:

Magnifique composition...
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Olivier.

Really really beautiful! Now I wanna visit that place too! smile Great shot, Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: Grazie, Sil. Since we're so close to England, we hope we can go back at least once a year! It would be a sin not to!

Yes indeed, England is the perfect background for this fabulous "framing".....
The photo is very clear, details are great !
Ginnie Hart: Hartstikke bedankt, Quark. We're so close to England, we will try to go back at least once a year!
