June 2024 Picture of the Month

 

Stinsford village is one of Dorset's many little gems, beautiful cottages down woody lanes, and leading to the village church in the churchyard of which lies Thomas Hardy's simple grave marker. I say 'grave marker' as only his heart is believed to have been buried there, the cremated remains of the great man's body being entombed in Poets' Corner in Westminster Abbey. Stinsford was one of the many locations I chose to feature in my forthcoming book In Search of Dorset.  Canon 5D Mark IV camera, 24-105mm lens at 24mm.
