    Default "The Two Cottages" A road trip to the Forest of Dean (Part 1) (Pic heavy)


    I was invited for a day out with the dynamic duo of Ian and H (who go under the name of ianitter on here) for a trip around a few places in the Forest of Dean. Also with us was none members Fanny & Jimbob (more about him after) I have been through the forest hundreds of times but never really stopped to see what was around, saying that, the two locations they took me to I would never have found.
    The first were 3 cottages deep among the forest with a good walk there and back to the car. The 3 were all within a 1/4 mile of each other (To you youngsters about 400 metres) The first 2 each side of a old lane and the other "Mary's Cottage" really hidden in the trees.
    there is very little left of the first two cottages so I will do them on the same thread and just call the cottage 1 & 2
    I tried out a wide angle/fisheye lens today and to be honest not sure if I like them. I will leave most of these on my flickr account here

    Cottage 1







    This is the only shot of upstairs, I managed to climb up so far and just stick the camera around the door





    Cottage 2
    Even more rotten than the first, managed to put my foot through the bottom step so did not go any higher.
    Loved the outer woodwork on the roof on this.











    Thanks for looking (Part 2 very soon)
