Shepherds' Cottage, Wherwell, Hampshire, southern England by 

This style of thatched roof is particularly characteristic of the mid-Hampshire villages. Roses round the door and a picket fence may be a cliché, but who could resist?

I am based near Winchester in mid-Hampshire (UK) and have enjoyed photographing a wide variety of subjects for over 40 years, though the digital revolution has been a real boon.

  • Thank you. A tripod is a great help, as is the grid my camera offers, though having to shoot this from the road, I did have to keep an eye open for traffic. Still, it was worth taking my time. Philip

    This is so lovely, Philip. It harkens of another time and place, as if from a Masterpiece Classic or Victorian novel. It is not cliche at all. ~ Bernadette

  • I suppose that this has evolved organically, as it were, and there is therefore no sense of mindless repetition or conscious imitation; perhaps I should alter the caption. Thank you for making this a favourite. Philip
