The Cotswolds, famous for hundreds of honey-coloured limestone villages in beautiful rural settings, is a must see if you happen to be in England.
I’ve been exploring that area and found beautiful places and very picturesque scenes. You need only open your eyes. The rest is automatically done for you.
On a trip through the New Forest, in South-West England, I stopped by this field to capture this beautiful, gnarly tree.
Bright cloudy days are truly best for cityscapes. Standing at the corner of Regent Street, off Piccadilly Circus, I was struck by the Yin Yang shape. You just can’t let something like this slip by.

Another West London cityscape. It is hard to get a clear view across any angle of Piccadilly Circle. Buses, cars, people. It’s a beehive. You have to be patient, or lucky.
Shaftesbury Avenue, off Piccadilly Circus
This is one of my favourites. This view from the promenade is just too good to pass up. The end of day was fast approaching and I had precious little daytime left. I wish I had some time, and commissioned work, to explore Vancouver and do some real image hunting.
