Around 100 acres of lavender fields was the first thing that I read about the famous Norfolk Lavender. Boy its huge! I was overwhelmed at the prospect of getting lost in the middle of a massive field while photographing hundreds, perhaps, even thousands of lavender rows. When at last I found out that it was just one bus […] Read More

My legs were shaking when I reached the ground floor from the tower of St John Cathedral but it was well worth it. I had been wanting to take a panoramic view of the city of Norwich from a high vantage point and this is my chance, a tower tour of the citys highest vantage […] Read More

If Stow-on-wold surprised me with its beautiful pastoral setting, Oxford overwhelmed me with its academic fame then and now talk about Oxford dictionary as one of the basis for standard British English.
