Sometimes to create beauty, manure is required  Photo of beautiful landscape with piles of manure in the foreground acting as photo bomb

Sometimes to create beauty and fertile conditions, you need manure

I took this photo while cycling in the North Yorkshire Moors last summer.  Initially I was upset to see the manure and dung heaps in the foreground then I realised, sometimes to create beauty and fertile conditions, you need manure.

This also reminds me of a joke about a bird that fell into manure.  It may have originated here: http://homepage.tinet.ie/~nobyrne/happy.html

Written in response to Friday’s photo challenge at  http://dailypost.wordpress.com/dp_photo_challenge/extra-extra/   A beautiful photo is one thing, but a photo with an unexpected detail has personality and pop. This week, share a photo that has a little something extra.

  1. How lovely! The only thing about discovering photos of other lands taken by those who love that land, is it makes me want to travel SO much. And I can barely get out of town 🙂 The humor made me chuckle too.


    • I feel the same way about travel and yet can’t really afford to travel much to distant lands. I would love to go to America and other parts of the world but recognise they would love to come to Britain and Europe. I am therefore trying to celebrate more of what’s on my own doorstep and appreciate it more. Glad you liked the jokes.
