Spring is on her throne

This is something I’d like to expand on for a bit of summer picture fun, if any readers are up for it – since I featured Steve Wilcox’s remarkable Walsall panorama last week, and Rose Burnell’s great Chasewater image, I’m looking for odd views, panoramas or shots from on high of Brownhills or the wider area.

Following the wonderful panorama of Walsall taken last weekend by Steve Wilcox that I featured here, here’s another, this time taken by friend of the blog Rose Maria Burnell, who took this one with an iPhone, and it’s a great image.

Across the rooftops

This remarkable panorama was created by reader and friend of the blog Steve Wilcox, who painstakingly constructed it from multiple images shot from a tower block in Leamore, near Bloxwich.
