Calendar Photo March 2015

I heard today that I have had an image selected for the March image in the 2015 calendar for a local courier company, Delivered of High Wycombe, Buckinghamshire, England.

It is the following image of Ludlow Castle showing the Great Hall and the Chapel of St Mary Magdalene with its circular Nave. The medieval castle is located in the town of Ludlow in Shropshire, England and was one of the first stone castles to be built in England, being constructed shortly after the Norman Conquest.

At this time of year in England the fields and woods are full of a variety of fungi which I enjoy taking photos of. Unfortunately I have very little (none) idea about to identifying the different types and which are edible or highly poisonous!

So I will just post a few of my favourite images, without too much comment - I hope you enjoy.

The first two were a selection of mushrooms growing on a wooden bench on the towpath of the Grand Union Canal near to Stoke Bruerne, Northamptonshire, England.

 The next four images were all taken in Shabbington Wood in Berkshire, England.
