Beautiful Britain - "Britain From The Air"

I'm expanding my horizons - as in leaving Scots Corner for Beautiful Britain :)
Thanks go to Angela Huddard for telling some of us about this free exhibition that is on display in the streets surrounding Bath Abbey until the end of February 2011. (Started yesterday.)

The photographs are stunning and not your usual "mainly beautiful scenery" either. Take some time to listen to the on-line commentary by Dr. Rita Gardner, Director of The Royal Geographical Society. You'll definitely come away with a different perspective on a variety of subjects.
then go to

One of the photographs featured in the exhibition is Hawthorn Heart, Oare, Wiltshire. Photographers for this one were Adrian Warren and Dae Sasitorn.

Just to give you a sense of scale here's a street scene found at

The abbey itself is gorgeous, IMHO. I've been there a few times and enjoyed each visit. I wish I could say I took this gorgeous sunset photo but alas I did not and I'm not sure who did.

But the next one was taken by Adrian Pingstone and shows the fan vaulting over the nave.
