Posted @withrepost @steve_parke - DUNSTER - Picturesque and rustic scenes in the West Somerset village of Dunster; Probably best known for it’s 12th century castle, Dunster nestles in the heart of Exmoor National Park and is a tourist hub for the area. Other significant landmarks include the 17th century Yarn Market, the Nunnery, the 18th century Grade II architecturally listed Dunster Watermill, and the 14th century Tithe Barn. Numerous additional Grade I and Grade II listed buildings can also be found in the settlement. On the evening of the 1st May each year the Minehead Hobby Horse visits the village and is received at the castle. Each third Friday in August the village hosts the Dunster show where many local businesses exhibit and showcase the best products from the region. The festive event Dunster by Candlelight, which takes place on the first Friday & Saturday in December was established in 198. It has become extremely popular with large crowds attending annually. Dunster is a gem and is undoubtedly one of my favourite villages in the South West of England. #exmoor #loveforsomerset #igerssomerset #topeuropephoto #dunster #thisprettyengland #pictureoftheday #travel_uk #britains_talent #gloriousbritain #bestunitedkingdom #englishcountryside #beststreets #photosofengland #seetoshare #ukpotd #yourbritain #thatchedcottage #yourshotphotographer #englishvillage #persuepretty #wanderlust #travelawesome #rurallife #weloveengland #houses_ofthe_world #instabritain #greatbritainshots #kingsvillages #bbcbritain

The World - cruise liner supreme visiting Dartmouth right now and captured here in a lovely shot by @sd_dartmouth - there are several cruise ships that visit Dartmouth each year and even this huge size ship often enters the River Dart and moors up right in the centre of the town harbour. This time the weather was deemed a little too risky by the Harbour Master so moored at the mouth of the Dart. . . . #Repost @sd_dartmouth with @get_repost ・・・ Where the world comes to Dartmouth #slopingdeck #bakery #restaurant #takeaway #Dartmouth #Devon #visitdevon #visitsouthdevon #visitbritain #gloriousbritain #theworld #cruiseship

#Chapter3 - The City of Bath, in Somerset, is a condensed snapshot of English eighteenth and nineteenth-century aesthetics, and it is this particular aestheticism that is recognised by the World Heritage Status, awarded in 1987 by UNESCO. ⠀⁠ ⠀⁠ The distinctive integration of architecture, urban design, and landscape setting, and the deliberate creation of a beautiful city are central to the city’s architects, John Wood and his son, as they laid out many of the city's present-day squares and crescents within a green valley and the surrounding hills to create England’s finest example of the 18th century #GardenCity. ⁣ The many examples of Palladian architecture are purposefully integrated with the urban spaces to provide "picturesque aestheticism", flowing naturally from the green surrounding countryside. No other photo can picture this very English aesthetic better than this shot of this leafy townhouse facade.⠀⁠ ⠀⁠ 📷photo credit @jamesmarkhamuk ⠀⁠ ⠀⁠ #bath #cityofbath #igersbath #visitbath #somerset #england #countryside #townhouse #architecture #gardencity #naturephotography #unesco #UNESCOInTheUK #worldheritage #worldheritagesite #culture #heritage #preservation #lovegreatbritain #visituk #ukshots #igersuk #photography #green #potd #gloriousbritain ⠀⁠

#Chapter2 - Lingcove Beck winding through the valley and joining the River Esk in the distance. Tranquil tarns, craggy mountains, glistening lakes, drystone walls and deep green fells are all characteristic features you can find in the Lake District in northwest England. Shaped by glaciers in the Ice Age, these wide, green valleys and high mountains became a World Heritage Site in 2017. ⠀⁠ ⠀⁠ 📷photo credit @danieltoal_photography , taken from Bowfell⠀⁠ ⠀⁠ #NationalTrust #lakedistrict #lakedistrictcumbria #lakedistrictnationalpark #naturephotography #unesco #UNESCOInTheUK #worldheritage #worldheritagesite #culture #heritage #preservation #lovegreatbritain #visituk #ukshots #igersuk #photography #landscape #mountains #river #mountainriver #naturephotography #green #potd #gloriousbritain ⠀⁠

#Chapter1 - On August 11, 1908, Sir Winston Churchill proposed to his wife Clementine Hozier under the shelter of the Temple of Diana in the middle of a summer rain shower. He later said; "At Blenheim I took two very important decisions: to be born and to marry. I am content with the decision I took on both occasions." ⠀⁠ ⠀⁠ 📷photo credit @blenheimpalace ⠀⁠ ⠀⁠ #blenheimpalace #blenheim #park #landscape #lake #temple #diana #proposal #churchill #winstonchurchill #naturephotography #unesco #UNESCOInTheUK #worldheritage #worldheritagesite #culture #heritage #preservation #lovegreatbritain #visituk #ukshots #igersuk #photography #architecture #art #naturephotography #architecturephotography #potd #gloriousbritain ⠀⁠ ⠀⁠

My parents have been visiting from the States and today ended up being the perfect day with Mom visiting the Queen’s country estate, Sandringham, in Norfolk. The walled garden was closed due to the garden show that starts tomorrow but the “small” garden off to the side of the house left us with plenty to ooh and ahh over. 😍 . . . . . . . . . #sandringham #sandringhamestate #herroyalmajesty #queenofengland #england #norfolk #eastanglia #englishcountryside #englandscenery #iloveengland #getoutside #flowersofinsta #englishgarden #countrygarden #royalhome #escapetothecountry #britishsnaps #yourbritain #ukscenery #thisprettyengland #gloriousbritain #genuinebritain #englandmylove #norfolkcountryside

Took a detour on the way home to call at Flatford Mill, on the Suffolk / Essex border, the scene of some of John Constable’s most famous paintings. We’ve had some lovely placemats for many years depicting amongst others The Hay Wain. I took this shot near to spot where he must have stood to paint it, with Willy Lott’s cottage in the background. It’s a beautiful place that’s hardly changed at all! 😎❤️🎨 #flatfordmill #willylottscottage #johnconstable #thehaywain #lovesuffolk #loveessex #visitsuffolk #suffolk #nationaltrust #discoversuffolk #scenicbritain #beautifulbritain #visitengland #gloriousbritain #genuinebritain #ukpotd #capturingbritain #europestyle_uk #total_united_kingdom #photosofengland #excellent_britain #thepipas2019 #visiteastanglia #placesinuk #flatford

Fog at Nanven - I'm delighted to say I've had 3 images published this month in the portfolio section of Digital SLR Photography. This is one of them, taken on a foggy day at Porth Nanven which at first didn't look promising, but delivered some lovely muted colours #gloriousbritain #visualheaven #dramaticcornwall #cornwall #porthnanven #porthnanvenbeach #cornwallcoast #cornwalluk #visitcornwall #southwestcoastpath #southwestcoastalpath #walkingcornwall #beachlife #longexposure #toplongexposure #longexposureshots #longexposhots #landscape -photo #landscape_lover #earthexperience #mthrworld #majestic_earth #ilovenature #ig_divineshots #EarthOfficial   #earth_shotz #landscapelover #landscapehunter ?

After seeing this location on the Tears for Fears Shout video 10 years ago, I have been wanting to visit ever since. It did not disappoint. It’s just magical. With the sun setting, the fog slowly rolling over the cliff tops, the Marble White butterflies fliting amongst the Red Valerian to the gentle waves on the shoreline. You HAVE to visit! • • • • • • • #durdledoor #dorset #dorsetcoast #dorsetlife #jurassiccoast #naturephotography #naturelovers #nature_good #nature_perfection #naturalworldwonder #unescoworldheritage #unesco #unescoheritage #explore_earth_ #explore_uk #capturingbritain #capturingbritain_coast #capturingbritain_rural #gloriousbritain #ukshots #uk_shots #geology #geologylife #photography #photographer #photooftheday #travelphotography #travelgram #travelholic #visitengland

Beer and a burger with views of Bath's Iconic Pulteney Bridge 🍺🍔 I think Bath has to be the most picturesque city I've visited in the UK, despite it being a fly by visit today...will have to return again to take in some more of the cities attractions for sure! 👌⛪ • • • • • #gloriousbritain #ukexplore #uk_greatshots #uk_photooftheday #ukshots #uk_shots #beautifulbritannia #yourbritain #excellent_britain #scenicbritain #britains_talent #lovegreatbritain #explore_britain #photosofbritain #photosofengland #explore_britain_ #visitengland #lovegreatbritain #reflectiongram #bath #bathspa #igerssomerset #capturedonhuawei #raw_reflection #city_captures #huaweimobile #longexposure_shots #longexpo #longexpo_addiction #raw_mobile

Nearly 30 years young, and my first ever visit to 'The Stones' 📷 Wild camping just a few hundred metres away wasn't a bad way to do it either, even if I did freeze my ass off 🤣...totally worth it for a beautiful sunset!
