Lisl: Merci bien, tilk
That is a terrific shot.
Lisl: Thank you, Michael - taken from a "cliff" to the South
that is quite some view, Lisl. i like your vantage point.
Lisl: Chris and I have been walking the footpaths within the City, and one took us up to this vantage point

What a stunning image, Lisl.
Lisl: Thank you, Ray - just part of our lovely City
In this view the houses wind like snakes...
Lisl: It is possible to see one of Bath's unfinished Crescents here, Larry
What a lovely image! It looks like a city of Gold!
Lisl: The sun was very wintry but brightened the Bath stone nicely, with a covering of snow on the hills behind

Magnifique vue !
Lisl: From the best vantage point in the City, Martine
OMG, Lisl! That's fabulous. I've never seen quite a view of Bath like that!
Lisl: I must show you then, Ginnie!

Oh, this is a magnificent view- where did you get it from - from a hill?
Lisl: This was taken from a vantage point to the South of the City - it is called Beechen Cliff, traditionally having been covered by beech trees, and still is

What a beautiful sight. The buildings really glow in the lovely winter light. This would make a fine jigsaw puzzle.
Lisl: That would certainly take some patience, Alan

Luckily the place is full of hills, so it is relatively easy to warm yourself up on cold days like this - as we both know. Isn't this view wonderful!
Lisl: It was great that day in that light, Chris
Lisl: Thank YOU, Bill!
I do not know this city Lisl but quite gilded under the sun it seems to me to have charm and his church or cathedral seems magnificent also
Lisl: This is one half of the main part of Bath - it doesn't show off our best Georgian Crescents, which are slightly to the left

It looks so small yet felt so large growing up there Lisl. This is a fine view from Beecham Cliff. From the SW heights the view of Bath is ruined by the large housing developments on the Western Riverside.
Lisl: I am pleased I didn't capture them, Chad. One building is good, though

Amazing view!
Lisl: Wonderful Bath!
Are these long houses unique to Bath? Do they continue with this style at present? There is a noticeable lack of trees.
Lisl: Not unique to Bath - they are Georgian terraces, and you will find them in Bristol, Cheltenham, Edinburgh and other places which expanded with money durin the Georgian period (18th Century). But Bath's are the most pure classical buildings of all.
What a magnificent view, Bath is still on our list of places to visit, we've looked at coaching holidays but sadly one gets just a few short hours which includes a guided tour whereas we prefer to wander about and see what we want at our own pace.
Lisl: You certainly would need longer than that, Brian. It is a shame it is so far for you to drive. There would be so much for me to share with you in the City
tres belle vue!! amitiés
Lisl: Thank you, jean pierre
Showing lots of expensive houses!
Lisl: You are so right there, Tom

I love the snow in the distance, behind the stunning cityscape smile
Lisl: Taken on our one snowy morning, Cherie
