Bourton-on-the-Water last Friday 5 of 5

We spent Wednesday to Friday in the Cotswolds at Bourton-on-the-Water last week and this is the final shot in this short series.

I took this series on my compact early last Friday morning before there were too many people about and the weather was o.k. The little river with the bridges over is just behind the memorial and runs along in front of the house.

Hopefully you will see some more shots from this short holiday as the year goes on.  For now I hope you all have a good weekend, I will be without my PC for a few days but will catch up on comments and postings in a few days time.

Another idyllic scene, Brian. Trust me, I'm keeping this name in mind: Cotswolds at Bourton-on-the-Water.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Ginnie, you would love it here I think, just also remember Stow-on-the-Wold, Broadway and Moreton-in-marsh, all lovely Cotswold towns nearby, and of course Chad lives only a few miles down the road I believe.
very nice scene for sure
can hear the birds twittering....
nice!
Cheers
Rob
Brian Walbey: Thanks Rob, it was a lovely queit morning at that time, no doubt the hordes of tourists arrived later in the morning.

Well done Brian - you finally got a shotwithout one of the thousands of tourists impinging
Brian Walbey: Thanks Chris, except I was a tourist myself of course. this was about 9.30 am, before the hordes arrive.

Nice series m8, most enjoyable tour
Brian Walbey: Thanks very much Tony.
You had blue sky too, Brian. A bonus.
Brian Walbey: The best day of the three Chad, and this is original blue sky, not one from the shed like certain people I could mention smile
Now it looks like a tradition English country village.
Brian Walbey: It certainly is Sheila, the only thing missing is a few thatched roofs, these are all built from the local stone.

Hope you get your P.C back soon Brian,nice war memorial shot to end a fine series.I bet they have a active branch of the British Legion in the area.This place could almost be a film set, its to perfect it appears not to have a blade of grass out of place,no pigeons chasing the tourits for easy food,no ducks on the water,no litter on the ground or ugly telephone poles and wires to spoil your shots.My yongest daughter and son in law live in this part of the world,but we have always avioded Bourton due to the amount of visitors that arrive each day.Splendid camera work,well presented.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Graham, the PC is going in for extra RAM while we are away for a few days. I should give Bourton a look=in when you are next at your daughters, this was early in the morning, about 9.30, the hordes seem to arrive later in the day.
Another wonderful capture Brian. I like the light!
Brian Walbey: Thanks very much Richard.
Another fine image Brian..your pping makes this stand out well.
Brian Walbey: Thanks very much Ron.
A fitting end to the series Brian portraying the lushfulness of the area.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Janet, later in the year I might post some of the other shots I took here and elsewhere in the area.

Definitely looks "English."
Brian Walbey: Very English Mary, and loads of gift shops and cafes etc.
Excellent picture Brian
Brian Walbey: Thanks very much Bill.
A fine series of images of Bourton on the Water Brian, I really would like to go back there one day.

This is beautiful, Brian. The War Memorial focusses the mind.
Brian Walbey: It does indeed Alan, particularly at the present time with an ignorant lying blockhead like Brown in charge of the Afghanistan problem. Rant over, thanks for your comment.
It's been a highly enjoyable series Brian
Brian Walbey: Thanks very much Albert.
