Snowy Christmas in the Cotswolds (West England)

Cotswolds header

Cotswolds is a beautiful region in West England, sometimes called the “Heart of England”. The area has been designated as the Cotswold Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

It is a beautiful area to visit and spend some peaceful time with lots of small towns. Another interesting information about the Cotswolds:

The Cotswolds is an area of England about the size of greater Tokyo.
Popular with both the English themselves and visitors from all over the world,the Cotswolds are well-known for gentle hillsides (‘wolds’), sleepy villages and for being so ‘typically English’.

The Cotswolds lie mostly in the counties of Gloucestershire and Oxfordshire. So I thought I would share with you a few images I took earlier this week. As it was Christmas time, there were no tourists (except for us 😉 ) so it was peaceful and quite everywhere – except for Boxing Day when all sales start, but on this day we just stayed in one of the small towns (far away from big stores).

And here’s an HDR shot of one of the beautiful pubs in the Cotswolds with a great atmosphere and great food! This is a composite of 5 shots taken handheld and they blended nicely even though the longest exposure was set to 1sec.! HDR was created with Photoshop CS5 of course. 😉

Enjoy and see you tomorrow for the last post this year… 😉
