Great capture of a lovely location John, visited here nearly 3 years ago on a snow-swept new years day, sadly without camera!
John Prior: Great place to get rid of the cobwebs, views for miles.

That is one fine monument John: no doubt visible for miles
John Prior: Yes there are views for miles from this vantage point, on a clear day you can see the power station at Didcot on the horizon.

Monuments are great attractions for us and it is good to know that, on the whole, they are maintained John.
John Prior: Thanks Chad this one is rather special, They have rather bravely replaced the weathered stone inscription with a new bronze one, the original bronze was stolen in the seventies.
Excellent composition, John. Love the included worn path.
John Prior: Thanks Mary, it's a great place to walk with views for miles below.
I'm familiar with this spot John, from walking along the Ridgeway Path and others in the area, it's really beautful! This is a great shot, I especially like the texture and tones of the grass! smile
John Prior: Thanks Martin
Very good composition John with the footpath places where it is and it looks to be a lovely spot.
John Prior: Thanks Brian, yes indeed, great views of Aylesbury plain, in fact on a clear day you can see into Oxfordshire and make out Didcot power station on the horizon some 23 miles away.
Fine picture John.
Nice shot John - they remind me of chess pieces!
