Organised Chaos


Chaos – Weekly Photo Challenge:

Each week, I will post a photograph as part of a challenge from the Daily Post – you are invited to participate. This week, the challenge is entitled, Chaos.

Please show me your interpretation of the subject by adding a comment below, with a link to your Website post, Facebook photo, Flickr image, etc.

This week, share your own take on chaos, whether it’s the mess in your living room, a busy street crossing, a party on the verge of getting a little out of hand, or any other subject that celebrates a lack of (visual) control.

The Featured Image (above) was taken while out on a hike and shows decades of plantation in Wild Ennerdale, which has resulted in organised chaos – a situation in which there seems to be a lot of confusion and no organization, which makes you surprised that the results are good!

Nestled in among the forests of Ennerdale are some remarkable stone structures dating from “at least” the Bronze Age. The photo below depicts one such structure.

During the medieval period the mineral potential of the valley was realised and resulted in the increasingly intensive extraction (iron ore) and localised despoiling of the fell sides. The Smithy Beck settlement remains remarkably intact, complete with evidence of medieval iron production.
