Broadway Tower - Cotswolds UK

Broken Britain.
Taken after a heavy rain shower, the light was fantastic for about 30 seconds (as is always the case!) I'd set out with the intention of getting home with a decent image that day that would stand a B&W conversion...

Broadway Tower is a folly located near the village of Broadway, Worcestershire, England, at one of the highest points of the Cotswolds. Its base is 1,024 feet (312 metres) above sea level. On a day of clear weather, thirteen counties of England can be seen from the top of the tower.
It was designed to resemble a mock castle by James Wyatt, and built for Lady Coventry in 1797. The hill upon which the tower was built was a "beacon" hill, upon which beacons were lit upon special occasions. Lady Coventry wondered if a beacon upon this hill could be seen from her house in Worcester, and sponsored the construction of the folly to find out. The beacon could be seen clearly.
Over the years, the tower was home to the printing press of Sir Thomas Phillips, and served as a country retreat for artists including William Morris.

For whatever reason Chris, your first image doesn't show up for me.

The second shot is great and the sky is so untypical.:wink:
