"Man was trying to escape the burdens of his own time. And such an escape was found in nature, particularly in desolate, uninhabited landscapes far removed from a city environment"

Appleby Horse Fair

What an amazing experience...
I think the last few days are going to have an impact on my next etchings.
 gypsy cobs
 Fair Hill, where everyone camps for the week. There you can see some of the most beautiful vados...some for sale, (... £20,000...and then I'd need to buy a horse). I love the gold...
 Dressed for the occasion
 Sun setting over the Eden Valley
 Man & Horse
 the Cobs who stampeded across the river to eat our strawberries...  they even tried to get the cork out from the wine bottle, but Natalie drew the line when they tried for the maya gold chocolate... ah and they look so peaceful in this picture moments before charging us ...
