Week 18 – the start of Summer?

We were in Malmesbury for a few days, a lovely town in a beautiful part of England; I’ve long wanted to take a photo like this, rather like some of the archetypal scenes from the 1960s . . .

A visit to Bath is something I haven’t for many years; it’s a beautiful place and the Abbey a great place to visit.  The floor of the Abbey is collapsing owing to the deterioration of the graves beneath it and some serious repair has to take place.  But in the meantime it still looks great.

Finally, lunch at Le Comptoir Libanais was well worth it, both for the food and for the visual impression.

Back to Westonbirt arboretum and I had a go at twisting the camera during a longish exposure.
