Well, he is if he ever goes to East Knoyle. he might become a little more educated though… Or hooked on Mills and Boon!
I stumbled across this little beauty on my way back from the Golden Two And A Half minutes the UK seems to be experiencing lately.
Focal length 55mm, Aperture f/5.6 Shutter speed 1/100 sec, ISO 100
This is the best it could do, taken from The Green looking across the Backmore Vale. As the sun dropped lower the cloud cover increased so there was no chance of even a glimpse.
Earlier on today I popped up Turners Paddock to have a bit of a mooch about and walked a little further on than last time to where a spring rises out of the ground and there are two derelict buildings the bigger built using local green sandstone and the lesser built using flint local to the forest. They offered up a couple of shots. I have no idea what the buildings used to be but they follow an indent that was probably once a flowing brook.
Things are still most definitely in Winter mode but there is promise!
And to finish, a black and white offering looking back across to the gardens.
All in all, it’s been a busy day, I’ve even managed to get a web page up and running. Have a look at focalthingy.wix.com/manual365 and let me know what you think. They also host blogs so I’m going to post this there and see how it goes.
PS Peeps: If you want to view the pics in greater detail click on my Flickr link, you can zoom in and the metadata is there too… You nerd!
