The 10 Mile Project

I started the 10 Mile Project several years ago after realising that I find the most incredible beauty within a ten mile radius around West Cottage, my Oxfordshire home. I’ve posted a limited number of photographs here but I’ll keep adding. Who knows, maybe a publisher will come across this page and offer me a book deal. Hey, if you’re reading this, and you’re a publisher, give me a shout! But who ever you are, I’ve posted these images for you. I hope you enjoy them.

    Wow! Your photos are amazing!! Would you mind if I did this on my blog too? I would, of course, link back to this post.

    Nicely done – beautiful light captured in many of these, and a sense of place.

    I admire your images that show reality and reflection in the depth of field.

    I love them one and all – what a fabulous idea. I had one blogger tell me that my header showed that I had traveled over the world and she wondered where I had been. The funny thing was that every photo was taken right at my home,or within 15 miles. We live in a wonderful area for photographs – and I truly believe that most people also do, if they take the time to look around. We’ve lived in the mountains, at the ocean, in farm country and in the desert – and each was complete with its own beauty.

      It’s true JoAnn. I’ve been photographing the ten miles around our cottage in England for years and still have so much documenting to do.

    What a fabulous place to live! The photo of the spider web is stunning, never saw anything like it! Great job Veronica!
