A recent trip to Birmingham provided the opportunity to stop off in the Cotswolds for a couple of nights. While I love the West Country seeing fresh places (& having some fresh photo opportunities) it always pleasant.
One of the first stops on a day out was the village of Winchcombe. Many of the buildings there are old and are of cotswold stone. The light on the stone is wonderfully warm (despite a flurry of snow between taking the two above).
The day was rounded off with a lovely sunset looking west over the plain of the river Severn from Crickley Hill country park. I will certainly be going back to the area to explore more during the coming year.
