Looks nice doesn't it, the sort of place where you'd stop the car and take out a picnic and sip a chilled glass of wine while the kids fly a kite and run around in bare feet with the sun kissing their shoulders. But a lot's happened here. All around this area the war-time government created ditches and mounds to hinder any possible landing by the aircraft of the Luftwaffe. A couple of miles to the east of here the RAF flew many sorties in Lancaster bombers during WW2 from RAF Aston Down. In the middle ages this was a busy metropolis, the heart of the booming wool trade, the pretty cotswold towns and villages like Minchinhampton were made possible by the revenue from this trade. Just over the hill due north of where this photo was taken is an inscription that reads 'Woeful D’ine Bottom' alluding to a huge battle and a heavy defeat for the Danes. And all around this area are prehistoric earthworks and ironworks and mounds and stones. So like I said... it looks quiet now ...

Excellent photo, this must be a trip to see in person.

Great work. I don't think I need to say 'keep it up' -- as I'm sure you will. :) (Smile)

you're killing me! i'm looking at flight prices as i type this... it's pulling me and it's all your fault! ok, not gonna blow much but dok, this is 'classic' imagery. and panoramic shots are just always a draw for me. so yeah, you're killing me...

dont stop.
