A Grazeley farm and some older pics

Hi again and once more a little later than usual here are some more photos, this time based around a Grazeley farm and some older pics.

I’ll do the older pics first;

Butterfly LR

Grasshopper LRAbove, a re-edit of two older pics, originally from a couple of years ago I think.

Below is a Thatcham at dusk photo…

The 2 photos above were taken in Ufton Nervet.

Woolbeding Tree Avenue TMLR

Above is a photo I took in Woolbeding on our way to West Wittering a few months ago. It was an appreciation post originally for a feature I got on Instagram.

Grazeley Trees Cat TM LR

A dreamy photo taken in Grazeley (above)

And the rest were taken again in Grazeley. I drive past this little farm on the junction of Mereoak Lane every day and I’ve wanted to grab a few shots of it for ages. I hope you like them.

I have to fess up and say the black and white image is made up of 3 or 4 photos taken at different expoures. The horse moved slightly between shots so looks a bit weird!

More Shots from West Berks

Hi, usually I’d have posted these photos much earlier but a busy day meant I didn’t get time, so a little later than normal here are this week’s offerings.

In time honoured tradition I’ll start with a throw-back photo; this week it’s from a few months ago when I was down at West Wittering. I loved the negative and positive space in this photo;

Man on Beach LR

And, just ‘cos, here’s something of a rarity; a selfie….

Ok so now the main course, more shots from West Berks, including Midgham and Bucklebury. I’m not going to ramble on so much, rather I’ll just let the photos do the talking – I hope you enjoy them;

Hi again, doesn’t time fly? I hope your week has been a good one and, despite the rubbishy weather (certainly here in the UK) the last few days you’re enjoying the Summer.

Three Mile Cross and Sulhamstead

It’s Wednesday again, where has the time gone? And the weather? This time last week we were in the grip of a wonderful heatwave, and now…
Well I hope you’re all well despite the overcast skies outside.

As usual, I start the post off with a random shot, this is of the sky above a meadow at the bottom of a hill in Bucklebury. I took this with a Lee soft edge 0.9 ND filter and I think it came out pretty well;

Thatcham Sky LR

Ok so I promised you some photos of Three Mile Cross and Sulhamstead, so without further ado….

Bucklebury

Well isn’t it a scorcher out there today? Such a shame to be sat indoors working when there are beaches, swimming pools and other more fun things to be doing!

TBefore I get to Bucklebury, here’s a throwback photo from about a month ago of a sunset in Ramsdell, Hampshire;

Another Ramsdell Sunset TMLR Photographic

So on to Bucklebury, you may remember I posted up some photos of Upper Bucklebury last week? Bucklebury is a little village that lies nestled between some beautiful countryside just at the bottom of Upper Bucklebury, with some gorgeous cottages and a church.

I visited this little place twice over the last couple of weeks, the first time I took photos from around the church…
