I live in a rather hilly town on the edge of the Peak District in the UK. Most streets have some sort of a view of the hills, but today it was very misty, so there was no view!
This is taken from just inside the park. None of those houses has a car parking space
hence the cars parked right down the road. It is also grey bin collecting day!
This is the front of the cream houses and the back gates in the brick walls of the next 6 or so houses. They were all built in the Victorian or Edwardian times
Another country! Tromso in Norway, way, way above the Arctic Circle. This is in June.
Dreary doesn't really describe this. Its Longyearbyen, in Svalbard (Spitzbergen) Well into the Arctic north - 78 degrees north if I remember rightly. Just imagine what it is like covered in snow and no sun for 4 or 5 months!
Again in Norway, in Bergen. One of the tiny little alleyways which squeeze between the big houses on the harbour-side This one opened out into a little square, and had a very welcome coffee shop there!
