This lovely cottage is one I found down one of the back streets of the picturesque village of Painswick, Gloucestershire, in England. I was told by our friends that there is a beautiful cottage down that road that is so beautiful during the late summer and early autumn season, always full of lovely looking apples. I managed to find it and I am so pleased I did. I think it is a little gem of a cottage. Small, quaint, and very warm feeling, although I bet it is difficult when the path is iced over. Please view large and enjoy this beautiful village scene. I don’t know anything about the cottage except that like so many others on this side of the village, it is very old. Probably 200+ years old.

Primarily a landscape photographer, my enjoyment of taking photos has developed from a young age. Originally from Texas, I now live in England and am surrounded by some of the most beautiful scenery. I enjoy outdoor activities such as climbing, hiking, and camping. I am blessed with a wonderful wife and three terrific children. I am a strong Christian and I believe that my love of photography and any talent I posses in capturing images comes from God.
