As The Crow Flies

Coventry City Centre

View of Coventry City Centre from about 6 miles away (I'm guessing).  
Photo was taken from a spot on a hill just outside Wolston Village.  

Please note the two of three Spires shown here:   
Coventry Cathedral (left) & Holy Trinity Church (right).
Christchurch is out of view.

Country Road

 Outside the Village of Wolston, Warwickshire

Enjoy this view of a country road heading off to a local farm,
not far from the City of Coventry.

It's been a long time since I posted something here. 
All is well with us for the most part, and 
I'm hoping the same applies to all of you.  
Have a good day!

St Bartholomew's Church (and Benchmark)

 Binley, Coventry

Easter Sunday Afternoon

Follow this path to enter the church on your left.
Just to the right of the entrance (behind a camelia bush) level with the step
you will find a chiselled horizontal mark known as a survey benchmark and bolt.
This is an elevation reference point.  I love finding them.
Click on the link and you'll see a few more in and around Coventry HERE.

California Redwood

 Coombe Country Park


These Sequoia trees are so big that I just couldn't fit them into the frame of my camera.

 Good morning all.  
This photo brings to mind a line from
my homeland anthem, The Star-Spangled Banner.

Five of Seven

 Coombe Country Park

Photo taken just outside Coombe Abbey Hotel.

I could only get 5 of 7 cygnets into the frame.  

I don't think it will be long before these are big swans.

I am a returning blogger and I promise that it won't be long

before I share photographs from in and around Coventry,

not just at Coombe Country Park (as beautiful and entertaining as it is).

Bear with :).
