Withycombe church, Exmoor

By HobbitDave
I uploaded this one earlier today, but wasn't too happy with it, so re-did it.
The crop in v.2 gives an idea of the two miles between the trees in my garden in the foreground and the village itself, which is across the valley and right on the slopes of Exmoor.
The little church is one of the oldest in Somerset, and dates back to Norman times.

Good times to all,

Lovely, Dave! I don't know which I like best - I think v2 to see more of it. But I love the framing with the trees. Imagine living with a Norman church nearby - I am green with envy.

I would just repeat what I said earlier: my preference is with V 1 in which we appear to be peeping through a spy hole in the vegetation, and a good example of how the 300mm. focal length appears to foreshorten distance.

I love both these captures ...we have the same view from our kitchen window, but we have a telegraph pole in view, so not so good! You'll have to tell us a history of this lovely little church when you have time?

Two beautiful images, Dave, great to see a bit of Exmoor again. V.1 gets my vote. Carol

I love 'view through' shots and the view with these two is a delight. V1 for me.

What a beautiful place to live! Two super images, both of which are very pleasing, but my personal preference is for V1 today for the lovely framing.
