Collins End Valley - PHOTOGRAPHER COMMENT
Virtual tour panorama taken from the bottom of the valley at Collins End near Pangbourne and Whitchurch-on-Thames. The image was taken in early April 2011 during a country walk in the area, and I was struck by the lone tree in the bottom of the dip, branches still bare after winter. You can just make out this tree on the satellite view of the Google map. And by the sharp descent and climb required to walk it!
