Locations, Phone Camera, Shoot Photos…

A few of the photos taken on my many wanders back when we were able to move around freely.

I hope they lift your spirits and make you feel happy.

Walking in the countryside is something I love to do and if I am mulling over a story it helps clear my mind to focus on the story I am thinking of writing.

The Vale of the White Horse is where I have set my new novel (series) Ms. Birdsong Investigates.

It is light years away from the life Lavinia has known in MI5.

  1. Jane, my spirits are most definitely lifted by the beauty of your photos and various locations. I’ve just realised I’ve never stopped in Berkshire … think I must rectify that when possible and visit the area this year!
