R/ABC Wednesday



R is for a run-down hut in the middle of a rice field.  A rural scene captured on the way to visit relatives in Valladolid.  I imagine a farmer eating his lunch in this hut, relaxing with a mug of coffee after a grueling day, and resting his eyes on fields of green and gold, anticipating a good harvest.   I sometimes long for the rustic tranquility of a simple country life, away from the noise and haste of city life.  To be surrounded by nature's bounty and kind, simple folks is absolutely Arcadian to me---it rejuvenates the spirit.

What a lovely picture. I am such a sucker for the country scene. I, too, sometimes long for rural living, especially when dealing with traffic.

Resting looking at nature is definitely rejuvenating.
I like your rustic, rundown shack.

It does look very tranquil, all to be heard just the rustle of grass. I feel quite relaxed already. Like the long shot with the different greens.
