    Hi All

    It's been a little while since I last posted here. My wife and I went away to an area known as the Cotswolds in England for our 5th wedding anniversary. It is about 30 miles North West of Oxford, if that helps???

    The weather was generally rainy, but there was the odd burst of sunshine and a couple of spectacular sunsets.

    We discovered a 1000 year old church called St Nicholas, and were lucky enough to go at a time when the sun peaked out and shone through the windows. It was an incredibly atmospheric church, which is hopefully portrayed by some of the photos below:

    We got to watch the sunset twice in a place called Broadway, famous for Broadway Tower, which was built in 1799 as a Gothic folly. The views were amazing, as were the sunsets:

    We also saw a lot of deer at Broadway Tower:

    I hope you like the photos.

    Any comments welcome.

    Warmest regards,

    Equipment used

    To follow up...

    All shots were taken with a Nikon D200, and I used the Nikkor 17-55mm AF-S for wide angle shots and the Nikkor 70-200mm AF-S VR + Nikkor 1.4x tele-converter for the deer shots. All processed in Capture NX 2 and Photoshop CS3.

    Regards,

    Grant

    You got some lovely shots here Grant, the Cotswolds are such a pretty place.

    Next time you may want to link directly into the cafe using the IMG syntax, it makes your thread nicer and easier to view.

    Thanks a lot Anthony. Being in a church so old and atmospheric was a really humbling experience. We were very lucky to have a break in the weather to see the sunset at the tower too.

    Regards,

    Grant

    My pleasure, glad I could help you take a trip down memory lane :smile:

    I am originally from Cape Town, South Africa and have been doing a lot of adventuring around Britain in the 8 years I have lived here...it really is an amazing place.

    All the best,
