Jimmy- Well it is beautiful at times, even if it is called a moor. Just for a little more info on Texas If you see this film - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/No_Coun...n_(film)-which is set in West Texas and the border towns of El Paso, and other towns along the Rio Grande River valley you will get to see the 'big empty'.Between towns and settlement which are usually about 100 miles apart there is nothing -so some 'blue bonnets' coming up in the Springtime seem so beautiful and a gift of Nature.
This is a classic West Texas film. The hotel that is the scene of the shooting where he gets in the truck and it crashes, I do believe is one I used to sleep in at Laredo,Texas.Yup, all the real bad guys are carrying guns and you better watch your back.Well if you have not seen this film you will be in for an amazing story of how a place,Texas changes over time and how the bad guys are more bad now than ever before.Good Luck to you and Be well !-Eli
Jim- Beautiful photo of Northeast U.K.-When I lived in Texas 45 years ago, the Texas Bluebonnet grew everywhere from Houston to the Mexican border about 700 miles on up to El Paso,Texas. Every month we 3 buddies would drive to the Mexican border somewhere along the Rio Grande River Valley for Texas border town holidays.We were young and full of foolishness. I too rode my BMW motorcycle to Mexico solo. And I had miles and miles of Texas bluebonnets for company.See it here >https://www.google.com/webhp?sourcei...s%20bluebonnet. So you see where your photo has those lovely blue flowers in the field-triggered some powerful memories. Here in New York the fields are covered in hard frozen snow for another month or so. And yet now in my memory I miss those miles and miles of Brown Texas fields with the Bluebonnet's asserting themselves on those vast parched landscapes. And your photo triggered it all...Great Photo!- Thanks.
