Recent frost, recent past.

The same location as the snow shot, The National Trust managed Hughenden Park. St Michael all Angels Church, Benjamin Disraeli (Prime Minister 1868, 1874-80) purchased the Manor in 1848. He and members of his family are buried here. There is a memorial to him from Queen Victoria in the church.

WOW, this is such a wonderful shot. Everything is perfect on this one. The light, the scene. I would not mind taking a walk here.....
John Prior: It is a great valley, nice in the changing seasons, thanks Astrid
I like the composition and the wintry colours
John Prior: Thank you Elle
I can feel the frost in this cool shot and get a feeling that it is very quiet. Excellent work.
John Prior: Thank you Mary, nice to find places that feel unchanged.
We went to Hughenden a few years back and visited the church too. He was a great favourite of the Queen's
John Prior: Yes he knew how to flatter her.
This is among your best John as far as I'm concerned, nobody could fault this as an image.
John Prior: Glad you think so Brian
Beautiful wintery scene! I love the long shadows on the frost!
John Prior: Thank you Elizabeth
