photoblog image Cotswold Collages - 10/15

Cotswold Collages - 10/15

I took a lot of photos during our trip to the Cotswolds in early July.  I am now presenting photos of the area in a series of 15 collages over three weeks which I hope you will enjoy.  They have been mixed up a bit to hopefully retain your interest and each individual photo has been processed using Topaz.

Not far from Bourton are the villages of Lower and Upper Slaughter. I don't know quite how they got their names but we called in at both, although we couldn't get parked in the latter, so I only took pictures at Lower Slaughter.  Once again there is a nice selection of old stone buildings and a small river running through, plus a nice church you will see another day. You will note in all the pictures in this series the lack of T.V.aerials, a result of the Clone Tool.

Truly a lovely area Brian

With a village name like "Slaughter" you would expect the brook to be running red.

Another super montage, Brian.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Ray, I guess there must be some historic reason to the use of the name Slaughter.

You were lucky (or skillful) to avoid the hordes of tourists Brian! This is a fine montage
Brian Walbey: Thanks Chris. We were there about 5.30pm and had the place almost to ourselves.
A lot of these collage pictures would stand alone very well Brian. As a series they give a great tour of the area. Have a good weekend
Brian Walbey: Thanks very much Bill, enjoy the weekend yourself.
Lovely stuff Brian.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Michael.

What a picturesque and proper village -without any "T.V. aerials" and "hordes of tourists"! Here the world might be still in order!? Yes, I remember the old stone buildings. Organic milk- I would like to try it! Sweet the Hamish- like dog posing on the stone post!
Brian Walbey: I'll admit to taking out the T.V.aerials Philine and most of the tourists had left by our early evening visit. They not only sell organic milk but the sign next to it for ice cream advertises their orgasmic ice cream, phew!
Nice collage Brian, again giving a good impression and feel to the place.
Brian Walbey: Thanks very much Janet.
Superb Brian!! What an amazing post card this would make. Awesome place Lower Slaughter, must plan a day with more time there soon..
Brian Walbey: Thanks very much Dave, if you live in the Coventry area this isn't all that far down the road from you.
Upper and Lower Slaughter!! Priceless.
Another nicely put together collage.
Excellent series!!
Cheers
Rob
Brian Walbey: Thanks very much Rob.

my favorite so far of the collection.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Jennie, this was one of my favourite places we went to as well.
Another good collage Brian..How is the G10 going?
Brian Walbey: Thanks Ron. Re the G10 I haven't done any serious work with it yet but have got it off Auto. What I have done seems to be of good quality.

Good for you for getting rid of the TV aerials, a real blight to the photographer (as are cars, people, satellite dishes, etc, etc). There are some little gems here, Brian. I like the post pox and milk churn!
Brian Walbey: Thanks very much Alan.
I'm sure that the name derives from something in old English, but off hand I don't know what. Google or Wikipedia may have the answer. Meanwhile, I love these images.
Sorry I haven't been able to comment of late.
Brian Walbey: Don't worry about your not commenting Sheila you have far more important things going n at the moment. Thanks for this comment anyway.

Another great set of images, Brian.
Brian Walbey: Thanks very much harv.
An interesting collection of Cotswold images Brian,when we lived in Birmingham these were regular day trips for us. Broadway, Broughton and the Slaughters were some of our favourite places.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Les, this is the first time I've been to the Cotswolds, I would like to go back and see more.
excellent collage Brian, post card material smile
Brian Walbey: Thanks very much Tim.
