Wandering Through the Cotswolds Lavender Fields


Cotswolds Lavender Fields

I can’t believe it’s been four years since I last visited the Cotswolds Lavender Fields in Snowshill. A lot has happened since then, including having taken photography lessons, so I was keen to see how I’d improved. With such stunning scenery as my subject I surely couldn’t go far wrong.

Exploring Oundle in Northamptonshire

With it’s golden stone you’d be forgiven for thinking you might well be in the Cotswolds. I […]
