Bronte country (two versions)

I was looking around via Google maps at the countryside around Haworth, where the Bronte sisters lived, and found this view to paint.  I know this is not a unique experience, but I remember discovering Jane Eyre in high school and feeling like it was a literary epiphany.  It so nicely resonated with my teen angst.  I subsequently began devouring all of the novels by the Bronte sisters (as well as other 19th century British women writers).  As I mentioned previously in a post, I did something of a pilgrimage to Haworth back in 1999.
