The Buckland RIngs form an Iron Age Hill Fort,open to the public with free access at any time and where locals often exercise their dogs. It's a lovely place to walk.

Wow, Ellie. This is quite an education from you (once again) since this is something brand new to me. I love hearing about such places, especially when they are at free access. Sometimes these places become ho-hum to to the locals who don't think twice about what they mean.

This really is lovely and very inviting. I would take my dog for a walk there (if I had one)!
Nice image, Ellie. wonder what it must have been like in the Iron Age. I love such places.

That's an impressive place! I didn't know of this kind of place, that's great you put some more link to have some more information.
Very nice light - well catched of this little wood.

A little piece of rural England. A very inviting scene that invites you to walk in.
Looks idylic there Ellie smile
EJWilkins: It's really nice Chris, not very big but interesting smile
I admire how the light on those tree trunks came out. For the last few days I have been trying to achieve something similar, but alas with limited success.
EJWilkins: I think the time of day helped Martin, but even so I'm very pleased with the way this one's come out. smile

And now we can choose for no-spam codes again. And the thumbnails are totally mixed up - Josie's bicycle is not a bicycle at all and so on. Even the green letters that says if it is a fresh pic are laying at stages. You had a swan up and no fresh pic indication. I have picked this up with a number of posts.

Great pic - you must be enjoying the e-400.
EJWilkins: I'm sure they'll fix it really soon Louis.
Oh yes, I really am enjoying this camera smile

it's a lovely country scene, it's funny to think of these places as they once must have been. mal
EJWilkins: Every time I go there I think of how it must have been, how many people it took to build the ridges and what it must have been like to defend the place. smile
I feel like walking through those trees now.
Lovely! Wonderful colours. The trees almost look painted.
EJWilkins: I was incredibly pleased with the way this came out, I've always taken lousy landscapes. Maybe it's part of the magic of the place wink
those are beautiful trees! Very interesting place it seems. I'd love to visit one day. I can't imagine how beautiful it must be in Autumn.
lovely trees!
Ellie, I will say a thing to youÂ… likes more you photography than those that illustrate the Link that you indicate! Bravo.
EJWilkins: racias Jose. Pensé que mi cuadro era más agradable que el suyo también. wink
