Autumn in Britain

Postby B_BQ » Oct 13, 2012 10:15 am

We got back home last evening from England. We had a lovely time and enjoyed our stay in the cottage in Warwickshire. Unfortunately we didn't have many sunny days, so I was not able to take many photographs of the stunning landscape.
However, I was reading The Telegraph this morning and came across a link to some amateur photographs taken of Autumn in various parts of the country. I thought they were worth sharing, as they do show how beautiful Britain still is once out of the nasty cities and big town, where there are too many cars spewing diesel fumes and too many people. We much prefer the more gentle and quiet countryside.

Welcome home Brenda. It just seems you just left for England. Sorry about the weather. I thought we were lucky in April on The Sunshine Coast, Brighton and thereabouts. Now our area is having similar weather to Britian.

Thanks for posting this BBQ, Im glad you had a nice holiday. I spent a lot of time trying to do a drawing of the bridge in the photo from Lawrenny, Wales. Ha ha. Not so easy to draw, but nice to look at.
