Best of the Cotswolds 6/7

When I posted my three week set of collages of the Cotswolds in August/September several of you said you would like to see several of the images full size so I make no apology for repeating those ones and a couple of my more favourite ones from the set.

A well-known landmark of the Cotswolds this tower, and the hill upon which it stands, affords a great view out over the surrounding countryside.  Again anothet favourite image of mine from the Cotswolds visit.

More details can be found at http://www.broadwaytower.co.uk/

What an impressive building- one of the bloody and passionate Shakespearian stories could play here! Yes, this is England as the flag may signalize! I would love to visit this place one day!
Brian Walbey: Perhpas you will get there one day Philine, who knows. The final one in the series tomorrow you particularly commented on when you saw it earlier this year in a collage.
I have driven past many times but have never been up for a close up look, so this fine picture saves me the troubletongue
Brian Walbey: Well I should take the trouble Bill, you can see for miles from up there.
I was waiting for this one to come Brian! I just love it. Well done indeed.
Brian Walbey: Thanks very much Richard.
I like these towers, and this is a very good one, I can see why you like it, really nice image Brian.
Brian Walbey: Thanks very much Linda.

Mmmm.. I can see why it is a favourite. I do like the mellow Cotswold stone. Good to see the St George's flag flying in the stiff breeze.
Brian Walbey: Yes that particular flag pleased me when I saw it Alan, thanks for your comment.
This looks a very interesting place to visit. Thanks for the link. I'd love to be at the top for dawn, or sunset. The views must be fantastic.
Brian Walbey: It is a great view from there Sheila, right across to the Malverns.

I've seen this tower many times from the road but never once did I see it close up Brian. Plenty of detail in the image, looks good to me.
Brian Walbey: Thanks very much Les.
Perfect shot!
Very nice tower capture, the sky is superb!
Brian Walbey: Thanks very much RS.

If the Lady of Shalott hadn't lived in her island castle of Camelot, I would say: She must have lived here- and she had a wide view from there while looking out for her love and her destinations of desire!
Brian Walbey: She certainly would have been able to see a long way Philine, the view is great from up here.

Love it!

Even though the Swiss seem to have claimed it.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Ray. It is actually good to see someone flying the English flag so boldly, no doubt the local council which catch up with him and put a stop to that.
Stunning shot; the tower stands very proud and the detail and colours are superb
Brian Walbey: Thanks very much Mark, I used a touch of Topaz to get this finish.
I love the detailing, and as always, your feel for the light is superb! smile
Brian Walbey: Thanks Donald, the light was good and a touch of Topaz has just lifted the colours and texture.
A very fine image.
Brian Walbey: Thanks very much Paul.
