What a lovely surprise Shropshire was. So beautiful and peaceful, no traffic, no crowds and lovely weather. We went for a photography course as neither of us was confident going beyond 'inteligent auto' setting on our cameras, now we are. It was a great course run by Photography Made Simple The tutors were supportive and informative and I am now practising using Aperture priority and other settings on my little camera. The course was held at Highley which is a pretty railway station on the Severn Valley Railway. The photo above was taken at the next station down the line where we had to practice our new skills.
We stayed at a fabulous B&B called Timberstones run by Tracey and Alex who were great hosts. The rooms were just lovely, both breakfast and evening meals were fab and there were even cocktails on offer. I would highly recommend this B&B to anyone. We met some lovely people over breakfast, dinner and cocktails which made this stay even more pleasurable than other places we have stayed. One of the reasons for this I think is that there was no television. We will go back one day as we loved it so much.
