This little hill is beside the bus stop in the visitors centre at Newgrange, Co Meath.
Even though the point of this place is to appreciate the history of the 5000 year old passage tomb, as I walked to the bus that took me to the monument, I seen this hill with the fence and flowers, and could not help but think of Lala, Po and the other two. It looks uncanilly like the place where they reside.
Thanks for looking!

Beautiful green hill lined with this fence and outlined with gorgeous yellow flowers,totally Awesome!!! The green grass and the blue sky are stunning, making your POV, DOF, FG and BG very pleasing to my eyes. Clarity is stunning, I just want to take a cardboard box and slide down this hill............Excellent presentation, very calming and dream like, great job Noel!!

I cannot admit to having ever watched the Teletubbies, but I can say this is one of the brightest and most cheerful shots I've seen here. The row of daffodils along the fence creates a nice lower border for a composition of greens and blues that are nearing pastel. Brings a smile to the face...

che piacere e che invidia a vedere questa foto, tutto quel verde rigoglioso, mentre qui è tutto secco.
Molto ben composta questa foto, lo steccato che fa correre l'occhio, i fiori gialli che interrompono il verde ed il cielo che contrasta con il bel blu.

Sadly, I know the names of the other two........Dipsy and Tinky Winky! Now you know the age of my eldest child for sure LOL
This is a very charming scene and it does look almost too good to be true- worthy of a TV set for a children's show. That paling fence must be brand new. I like the way the fence zigzags its way through your composition.
Great job, well seen

Hehehehe what a title, it gave ma a giggle. Funny the things you think of eh? I'm still getting over Tinky Winky being outed as a gay man. Remember that? Jeez! Anyway, back to your lovely photo. The zig-zag of the fence certainly draws the eye into the image and we naturally follow it all the way up the Teletubby Hill and to that brilliant blue sky. The colurs are vibrant, incandescent and the scene is beautifully saturated and exposed. A minimalistic image, but one with great visual impact. Thanks for sharing, have a happy day.
PS: Apologies on behalf of all Aussies for the stupid comments of that sports commentator (or should I say moron) Barwick! I hear he's caused quite a stir

What a cute scenery!
Funny, I was there just few weeks ago and I overlooked this!
Congratulations! This is a proof of big talent, if you can find so nice motifs, where other photographers just passing by.

The composition well so well especially how the wooden fence leads the eyes from the fg to the distance. It's just a pleasant simple shot neatly arranged with lovely contrasting colours but the vivid yellow creates a strong focal there. A superb rendition of this image in fine details and sufficiently lit. Great effort. TFS

Fantastic nature-man hand interaction. Superbly captured in my opinion. The woden fence is nicely leading eye through the frame. The overall composition is beautifully enhanced with the nice yellow flowers.
Have a nice weekend.

beautiful scenery and nice association referring to the title and your note.It looks really almost like a scene from a fairytale-the colors are delightful,so vivid and well-saturated.Also the strong contrast help to get this impression.The way you composed the image with the fence dividing picture in two parts was an excellent choice.
Have a nice weekend

A good idea to shoot this hill. A simple, but very effective composition. Very well spotted. I do remember the teletubbies and your choice of title is right on and accompany the picture very well. Great work:) Have a nice WE.
Best regards, Erling

Belle prise entre jaune des fleurs, verdure et un arrière plan en ciel bleu.
Un sentiment de paix et de quiétude se dégage une fois que les yeux se posent sur cette photo.
Les couleurs se trouvent bien préservées avec un intéressant POV.
Merci pour le partage.

Impressive photo with nice colors. I like the shape of the fence that blends with the colors of spring.
I wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

questa mi era sfuggitaed eppure i suoi colori esaltano la composizione: un bicromatismo fatto dal verde del prato al quale si unisce l'azzurro del cielo, ma la staccionata con i fiori alla sua base sono il vero soggetto e la loro disposizione è piacevole e ne esce un quadretto ricco di poesia.
Ciao e buon fine settimana

I was enjoying going through your photos and thought 'Hey, why not one more!' O.K., is this real or something from a soundstage on a t.v. production lot? It looks to good to be true...seriously, I would swear this is completely man-made! It's simple, and simply beautiful. The rounded top of the hill and the fenceline work incredibly well together. The two-toned color effect of the green and blue is enhanced by the dash of yellow from the flowers, tying everything together quite nicely.Fantastic photo and perfect title. Love it!

Good evening, Noel,
Superb! This is one of the most interesting photos that I saw today here. Outstanding combination of the green&blue. And the yellow flowers are just great bonus for this composition. The fence adds very effect graphic.
My congratulations! Just an art work! TFS!
Greetings from cool Autumn but sunny Ural!

Good evening Noel, a typical Irish countryside, people comes from all over the world to admire these landscapes and that special lemon green of the moors
Beautiful yellow blossoms and a charming wooden barrier, good meteo conditions that day, all the best, regards
