The War Memorial in Bourton on the Water is situated between the High Street and the River Windrush, not far from the Cotswold Motor Museum, which is just off to the left of the building in V2. Can't decide which I prefer - the willow tree in V1 is rather dominant in the scene, but didn't want to crop off the trunk, and it does partially conceal the red phone box, which in V2 is a bit eye-catching!
Not long now to my next break (which is a week earlier than originally planned) when I'm going to Sandown on the Isle of Wight for a few days. I had booked to stay near Colchester, with outings around Suffolk villages, but as it only attracted 13 people, it got cancelled! Sad The IOW was one of my other choices when I booked, but at the time the weather was rather wet 'n' windy, and thought the crossing of the Solent may be a bit iffy! But it seems to have perked up a bit and is now more Spring-like. The hotel has an outdoor swimming pool, too, so might just take my cozzie…! Smile

I like them both Trev, the willow tree in V1 adds a specialness to the image...great photography...
What another trip....Grin....are we going to see a selfie of you in your cozzie....I love the IOW, so many great photo opportunities. My camera battery ran flat on arrival there for a day visit so never got one image....lesson learnt

I'll go for V1 as well, Trev, I simply prefer it!
Can't imagine it being easy to take a 'selfie' with a D7100, unless you take a tripod of course, but the ladies are piling on the pressure already Wink

V1 for the veil of weeping willow twigs. What a very peaceful setting for a war Memorial.

I do prefer the wider view of V1. That is such a lovely tree. But, two well captured images.

Both images make for great viewing, however like a lot of images we see on ePz they can become cluttered with unwanted junk like signs, bins etc, etc. I might have been inclined to tidy up both images where possible. I.e.: removing the cars, and rubbish bits if possible. Otherwise you have two cracking images that I would love to have captured.

Two superb pictures of this lovely setting Trev. Down here on the Solent at the moment its freezing, and wet. Hope your pools heated.
