Being Part of the Wild Places 

Burnmoor Tarn

I live in a beautiful part of the British Isles. People treat it as a holiday destination and I live here and sometimes it feels like being on holiday for free.
Our holiday destination last year was Cumbria. We discovered  an unusual place called Burnmoor Tarn. It felt about the most wildest area on the holiday, even more wild than Scarfell Pike which we had climbed. TheTarn was overlooked by a lodge, completely isolated with no road to transport food or supplies. Anything required needed to be humped there by foot. This place caught my imagination and became the wildest and  most beautiful summing up of Cumbria. The Tarn was surrounded by Cumbrian mountains and it really brooded, especially on our return in the closing light. 
Think about wild places and this will fit in with the competition in the future. 
                                               A Celtic Prayer
There is no plant in the ground
But is full of his virtue.
There is no form in the strand
But full of his blessing.
There is no creature in the river,
There is naught in the firmament
But proclaims his goodness.
