A cold winters day in the Cotswolds. We had made the trip to go to the Cotswold Perfumery in Bourton to get my Christmas present from Carol. I always take one of my cameras with me so when we got to Bourton and parked up I decided to take my camera with me and TBH I am glad that I did because it all look so amazingly pretty. An added bonus, due to the lack of people visiting Bourton meant that I was seeing it as I personally have never seen it before and I would doubt that many people watching this video, that unless you live there you too have never seen it this quiet.... Enjoy...
