The title of this blog is, of course, an unanswerable question.
Or is it?
If this is not the first post of mine you’ve read, you’ll know that I’ve spent a great deal of time in Great Britain. Mostly, this is because I have lots of family there, but also…. I LOVE IT.
Many people believe that, for a place to be beautiful, it has to seem untouched by the hand of man. While I do not disagree with this, there is something beautiful about the undeniable and enduring presence of man’s influence on Britain’s southern landscape.
For me, it is the synthesis of the evidence of humankind and the dramatic changes between nature’s greenness and greyness that make Southwestern England multifaceted in it’s beauty.
I think England’s Southwest certainly is a contender for one of the world’s most beautiful places… but it is definitely not the only one!
What makes a place beautiful to you? Where do you think is the world’s most beautiful place?
