"If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen."

Sunday Reflection

  1. What an incredibly lovely piece of video - thank you, CE.

    I can't say I was too taken with the soundtrack; it occurred to me that Débussy's La Cathédrale Engloutie would have been a perfect accompaniment, but we can't have it all our own way, now can we?

    Thanks again, and have a good week-end.

  3. Thank you all. It's a bit of a departure since I normally do England-associated things for SR but this was so 'loverly', as Incoming says, that I couldn't resist.

    Isn't it strange to see the world from a different angle - I love the underwater bench and the thought that a few weeks previously some happy, picnicking family might have been sitting on it taking in the glorious views.

    La Cathedrale Engloutie would have been a good choice, Opsimath, but I didn't really mind the few minutes of twanging.

    Thanks for dropping by Welshcakes - I'm so glad you enjoyed it.
