Hi Bob. Had a trip to the Charnwood Forest region today and went to these three churches. I must say I prefer your inventive shot with the gates! I had been heading to Stamford but was put off by the long sunless periods which looked worse further east.

Thank you for the YSL Steve I'm glad you think it worthy. I revisited Bob's extensive gallery of Leicestershire churches this evening and I have to say I prefer his inventive shot with the inclusion of the gates. I was in too much of a hurry and should have taken more trouble! Admittedly the sun was only shining for about a minute so one had to be quick! Tim :))

Hi Tim Nice take, I was at Thurmaston when you took this shot, the shadows again are most welcome to the scene as is the Silver Birch on the right.The cloud formation that frames the tower is spot on.I agree with Steve its worth a YSL. Regards. Bob

What a pity I didn't realise - we could have rendezvous'd somewhere. I thought of you as I passed the entrances to Bradgate Park - a place I have yet to visit, but it was so busy I decided to leave it. I'm not bound to school holidays anymore. I had not expected to be in this neighbourhood yesterday and had left a crucial OS map at home so was relying on an out-of-date road atlas for Anstey. I have given you my mobile number but do you have a mobile yourself? If so and I find myself nearby again, I could send you a text. A propos the photo I have to confess the clouds framing the tower were a bit of luck - there was a brief window of sunshine and I grabbed the opportunity otherwise it would have meant a 15minute wait. You know what it was like. I had two long waits at Osgathorpe. Best regards, Tim.

Hi Tim Now that I have fully retired, I get out most days weather permitting.We all need a bit of luck with the weather.I do have a mobile, I am not allowed out the house without it.I will try to send you my email.I have had a good day at Shackerstone and Great Eaton good light and cloud. Regards Bob

Hi Bob, I have visited Shackerstone alongwith Congerstone in 2009 but confess I have never heard of Great Eaton. I shall look forward to seeing your photos. I have written a reply to your comment on Osgathorpe - which, if you're like me, you might miss because Pano only tell you "new" comments. Suffice it to say that I was intrigued why you had specified early morning to visit. In addition to my other comments - there is a brick shed built in the SE corner of the churchyard forcing even closer to the church from that angle. I, too, am not allowed out without my mobile!:)) All the best, Tim.
