Hilary's Blog
Morning walks and inspirational thoughts from the mystical, magical Shropshire countryside
Hilary Jane Jones
There are many things in the natural world that fire my imagination and inspire me to write, from ‘dens’ and ‘doorways’ amongst tangled tree roots, to toadstools growing on a rotting stump down a farm lane. Here are just a few of my favourites:
Tracey Swain TnT-Photoart 'Painter of Light' Photography
The photography of Tracey Swain Painter of Light and her blog of times when out with camera.
Elemental Tangents Book/CD a TnT-Photoart Publication
The travels of Tracey Swain a ‘Painter of Light’ in the world of Mother Nature and all her elements. The magical play of music on her landscapes, without which our travels could not be taken. For our world is full of music if we but listen to her breathe.
