Walking areas have varying attractions and give you different feelings. The Lake District is joyously beautiful. Wales feels more of a retreat because it’s a rougher place, less touristy and more quiet. Photographically, I enjoy the colour palette of Wales with the heathery purples you often find. Nietzsche said “It is the stillest words that bring on the storm. Thoughts that come on doves’ feet guide the world”. I’m not sure this is true. Very often it’s noise and shouting which causes the greatest fuss. There is however a place for stillness, perhaps now more than ever before.
