Today's picture is a view of the rolling fields near Ellesborough in Buckinghamshire, taken from the top of Coombe Hill. The shadows of clouds seem to lollop across the landscape, like they belonged to giant invisible rabits, chasing the pools of light. It's a classic English viewpoint, with Chequers house nestled in the valley to the left of frame and the sounds of horses, dogs and the odd car, drifting up on the afternoon breeze, whilst I just sit and take it all in... slowly...

HaHa, but before man 'spoilt' it there was just a BOG, and you couldn't get a decent pint for love or money.... but then there's still places like that....

Know the spot.
Spent an Autumn day some years ago ambling around from the M40 at Lewknor and ended up here late afternoon.

Got questioned, presumably from a security person, what I was photographing, so I guess Chequers had or were about to have visitors.

Nice composition with the inclusion of the golf course and buildings with the field colours representing different agricultural activites.
