'On the edge' of the estate of Greenway, the Devon home of Agatha Christie.The view is looking down to the River Dart, a short boat trip and you are back in Dartmouth.

According to the Guiness Book of Records, Agatha Christie is the best selling author of all time!

If you are ever in the area, the house and grounds of Greenway, are well worth a visit.You can wander around the rooms, looking at her and her husbands collections, amongst other things.

It was a very wet day, thus the light was not great!
Thanks for looking.

Beautiful view and an interesting place, it is great to see the path that maybe walked Agatha Christie,

Love the way this fence is adding depth in the country side scene, Jean!
Superb sharpness and well caught contrasts in the work.
An elegant white bordered frame does enhance the overall appeal of the picture too.
Nice work!

Have a nice Sunday.

Kind regards,

Hi Jean,
What a lovely view. soft muted colors in a misty atmosphere. AC was one of my favorite authors growing up, although I can not remember when I read one of her books last. In deed it was very pleasing to learn a bit more of her through the photo.


Hi Jean,

An interesting place and very nice view indeed. Very well done.

Hi Jean.

A lovely view down river to Dartmouth and Kingswear, you capture so much of the rich trees along the river, nice touch lining up with the fencing for this one.

Hi Jean,

Looks a little like rural New Zealand but without the sheep. Excellent sharpness, colour & saturation. A superb downward pov in this splendid landscape and I like how the barbed wire fence has been incorporated into the composition starting in the bottom left hand corner to add perspective. Tfs!

Bonsoir Jean
Nice and peaceful landscape ; good pov
The "poor" light adds mood
Bon week end
