What are you doing less than 5 miles from my house???
How long are you going to be around there?
I'm afraid I'm already back home.
If I'd have known you lived nearby...
We left the M40 at a random point and drove round country roads for a while. I didn't even know until I was back home that I'd been in Buckinghamshire.
We are in Nettlebed, at the top of the next hill to the north.
Now that is a truly beautiful scene. The windmill and cattle above caught my eye more than the lovely roofs and the man on the ladder.
The whole thing is a wonderful composition!
I think the man on the ladder is the key to the composition.
And the way the window gable mirrors the blades of the windmill.
You're right. I hadn't spotted it....
You do know this is where they filmed The Vicar of Dibley?
Very nice. I love the sagging roof line.
I guess those cottages have been there a very long time. It's hard to tell with vernacular architecture but I'd hazard a guess that they're 16th century- possibly earlier.
I imagine they are easily that old.
Beautiful photography, as always.
