A walk in the Chilterns (image heavy)

Last Sunday, grey and cold to start and brighter but still cold to finish
Started off at Turville Heath, taking in the villages of Skirmett, Frieth, Fingest and Ibstone.

Rundown barn on the approach to Skirmett.

Nice gritty looking images of an area I've never visited, thanks for posting Huw. I especially like that deer shot, great fun, really well spotted.

Re: A walk in the Chilterns (image heavy)

No apologies needed Huw, those are nice reminders of an area I used to visit myself when I lived in Herts. The deer shot is beautifully captured and ought to be published somewhere where it will make you some money!

That is a lovely set. The deer shot does look special though. Seeing the St Bartholomew Church reminds of the church of the same name in Prospect (west of Sydney), NSW where my first Australian (English) ancestor was buried. I need to get some decent photos of it myself.

Re: A walk in the Chilterns (image heavy)

A lovely set Huw. As others have said, the deer shot is pretty special, brilliantly seen and executed. I wonder if there are two pissed-off farmers - one at losing his deer, the other at having deer eat all his crops.

I really love the one of the village of Fingest sitting in its valley. The composition, setting, colours and flat light are completely evocative of an English village in winter. I wonder how it would look at dusk, with the lights on in the village and some light still in the sky and on the landscape. Strikes me it would be like the welcome first sight of home after a long hard journey.

John

Nicely thought out set. I especially like the view (#5) and the woods above it. Great timing on the shot of the deer.

A nice set full of interest and variety, each one perfectly captured. The deer, of course is the stand out image but I also really like the old barn.

A really nice set. Love the deer one like everyone else but I also like the village setting with the windmill on the hill in the distance.

Re: A walk in the Chilterns (image heavy)

Huw these are just wonderful, the image that sticks in my head is that masterful shot of the herd of deer following their leader.
Overlooking Fingest is a charming landscape, the soft English light renders pastel toned colours.
The ivy leaves of the creeper on atree trunk is also a standout image. When you got home I hope you took of your boots before going inside ...

Thanks to all for your very complimentary and enthusiastic comments.

In case you didn't spot the Cobstone windmill on the hill (as Keith did) here it is from a southerly direction.
Famous for it's big screen appearance in Chitty Chitty Bang Bang.

Incidently you may or may not be aware that the 'Vicar of Dibley' series was shot around this area, Turville village (and it's church) in particular which we managed to circumnavigate on this particular walk

That's a lovely set Hew. I really like the one of the deer crossing the fence. Fantastic capture!
