Not so much shadowed as dwarfed!

Lost him!

Lost him!

I had little intention of clambering to the heights of Penshaw Monument when I set out for my walk on Monday.  It was blowing a gale, for one thing!  But blue sky and the temptation to ‘see for miles’ got the better of me.

You can even climb to the top, in Summer!

You can even climb to the very top, by a hidden staircase, in Summer

It didn’t last long before the rain gusted in, but it was good while it lasted.  And how else would I meet the weekly challenge?


  1. This is an incredible monument. And that first photo is mesmerizing. I love the way the gentleman could be easily overlooked in such a powerful structure, but instead he becomes a riveting focus to me. I think it’s a wonderful photo,Jo! You take some wonderful photos in some absolutely stunning locations. 🙂

    1. Thank you very much, Debbie 🙂 It’s actually Mick wandering about and I just managed to catch him when he stopped for a moment. (too cold to linger long 🙂 )

  2. What terrific photos, Jo! The lightening and the shadows are marvelous. England is most definitely full of whimsical places, and I love seeing how you showcase some of those spots!

    1. England is full of whimsical things, Sonel. I guess it takes our mind off the weather 🙂 🙂
      Thank you for your kindness. Wishing you a wonderful weekend 🙂

      1. It sure is and it’s a good thing then. 😀

        You’re very welcome and wishing you a great weekend as well. 😀 ♥

  3. This is totally new to me, what a highlight, Jo! Hope the New Year started well, being good to you and yours.
    Lost of love from the Four of us, Dina xo

    1. We tend to take it for granted on its distant hill, Dina, as we pass by on the motorway. Up close it’s quite impressive 🙂
      Doing well, thanks! Hugs to you all 🙂
