On a recent drive to Scarborough to sell our caravan i was amazed how many times i wanted to get out of the car to take pictures especially approx 30 miles from Scarborough. There were hay bales,picturesque barns,fields of mist and too many more to mention. why is it around where i live even the countryside there is nothing like this? is it me not noticing because i'm used to it? anyway we have to go up there again on Wednesday and i will get out of the car to take pictures.

I find that I tend to look at a new place in a different way than I look at myhome town so I would not be surprised by whatyou say. As an aside, they say that more accidents happen when you take a different route to work or school because it is familiar enough to 'feel safe' and run on autopilot but different enough that you miss new dangers. So that would extend to the 'familiarity breeds blase' (somehow 'contempt' is not the right word) line of thinking.

Actually, I usually find that the areas where I see great views, there's just nowhere to stop.

We take our normal surroundings for granted and so miss pretty well everything that a stranger would find interesting.

If I were you I would concentrate on the road and not at bales of hay in fields!

That is very true.

It seems to be a fact of photographic like that you will see far more to photograph on a half-mile walk away from the road than on a 50-mile drive on the road.

Down to different use of the countryside Phil. Around Blackpool its predominantly dairy, green grass and loads of cows. Over in east Yorkshire its more arable or mixed, rolling open fields of cereals, they would have been straw bales you have seen either the rectangular or round ones I guess.

You have just noticed a difference in land use and made comparisons I guess, perhaps noticing the arable land more interesting or unfamiliar to what you are used to.
