Devon

Este fin de semana tuve la suerte disfrutar de unos días de descanso, en familia, en la preciosa campiña inglesa de Devon (Thurlestone). Llovió, como era de esperar en el último fin de semana de febrero, pero entre chaparrón y chaparrón salía el sol para animar a los narcisos y las más valiente flores primaverales. Lejos de aguar la fiesta, la lluvia nos regaló unos colores de cielo impresionantes y casi irreales  saturando los campos con agua y color a la vez. Cuando los rayos de sol encontraban un hueco entre las negras nubes de la tormenta para realzar la espuma de las olas recordaba un óleo de Turner. El verde casi florescente del campo de golf chocaba con nubes de un azul tan improbable como hermoso como los colores de un lienzo de Gaugin mientras que los cuadrado campos de colores verde y rojizo me recordaban a un Mondrian.

Last weekend I was lucky enough to enjoy a few days of rest and family fun in the beautiful English countryside of Devon (Thurlestone). It rained, as is to be expected in the last weekend of February, but between showers the sun shone through the clouds to encourage the daffodils and other brave spring flowers. Far from dampening the party, the rain gave us some incredible and almost unreal colours as they saturated the fields with water and color at the same time. When the rays of the sun found a gap between the dark storm clouds to shine on the spray of the waves I couldn’t help being reminded of a Turner seascape. The almost fluorescent green of the golf course contrasted with unlikely bold and beautiful blues of the sky likes the colour on a Gaugin canvas, whilst the bright green and red squares of the fields and hedgerows reminded me of Mondrian.
