Birchanger Woods

First snow of the winter so I took a short walk through the local wood. Although we had a reasonable amount of snow the temperature was well above zero so it was not going to last.

Cosford Cold War Hanger

The Cold War Exhibition is housed in a truly stunning building. Unfortunately, the light was so poor on the day that I visited I have decided to show these images in black and white.

2008 Civic Trust Special Award for Sustainability
2008 Civic Trust Award
2007 RIBA Award
2007 European Steel Awards: The UK Entry
2007 British Construction Industry Awards: Building Award
