Forget the 'much photographed': this is a brilliant photo of, undoubtedly, a very photogenic street. However, when all is said and done, beauty is in the eye of the beholder So, Graham Beholder, well done!!! A marvellous pic!!!

I never tire of this view. Beautifully done, Graham. It occurs to me I wouldn't want to try to navigate that hill when there's ice and snow!
