#MySundayPhoto - Hidden Fields

Passing along the same road everyday you miss the whats around you and follow the same route. Just slightly off side of the road hidden by bushes is this field full of crops. 

A few metres from the busy road is this glorious and lush field just asking for me to take it's photo.

#MySundayPhoto - National Trust Colours

It's at this time of year when National Trust gardens really come into their own, the flowers, the trees and the wildlife. 

Our local garden Sheffield Park is simply stunning, they have the most beautiful waterlilies filling the ponds. Mix this with the wonderful rhododendrons their really isn't a better sight at this time of the year.

#MySundayPhoto - Beautiful Countryside

#MySundayPhoto - Beautiful Countryside

Blue skies, carpets of green crops growing in the Bank Holiday sun. 

Over the long weekend, I went off for a countryside hike with a friend in the hope we'd find something of interest to take photos of. I have a camera to test out for a review and it seemed like the perfect opportunity. I also look a lens ball with me which I might share the photos of in the next few days. 

I'm pretty happy with how this one has come out.

#MySundayPhoto - So Quaint

#MySundayPhoto - So Quaint

When I posted this photo in a Brighton Facebook group some didn't believe that this was taken in Brighton but it's right in the centre. It's kind of hidden but easy to find. 

It looks like a beautiful quaint English village but it's about 5 minutes from the seafront. With the flags fluttering in the breeze and the blossom on the trees it looks perfect.

#MySundayPhoto - Woodland Path

#MySundayPhoto - Woodland Path

I'm loving seeing the changes in the local woodland. A month back it was brown and lifeless, a couple of weeks ago full of bluebells and now they've gone it's bursting with green. 

I particularly like this photo with the path off to the right, the way it leads you into woods.

#MySundayPhoto - Fairytale

#MySundayPhoto - Fairytale

There's something about it, may be it's the sunlight or the colours but this feels like something out of a fairytale. 

The trees are bursting with fresh leaves, the grass is growing and the birds are chirping. 

This is the best time of the year to enjoy the outdoors and fill yourself up with nature.

#MySundayPhoto - Bluebells

There is nothing that sums up this time of year quite like a proper English Woodland filled with bluebells in full bloom. 

For me, it's a sign that Spring is in full flow and that Summer is right around the corner. 

I do not think I have ever seen anything more beautiful than the bluebell I have been looking at. I know the beauty of our Lord by it.

 - Gerard Manley Hopkins

This was taken using portrait mode on my photo, it's an underused mode as I think people only think it's for photos of people.

#MySundayPhoto - Hidden Woods

#MySundayPhoto - Hidden Woods

The other day I went hunting for bluebells...I found some but that's for another day. Whilst exploring I stumbled across this part of the woods which looked like a walkway into a hidden part of the woods. 

At the end of it was an opening to a lake, the weather wasn't great but I will return when the sun comes back out.

#MySundayPhoto - Afloat

This is a sculpture just next to the Palace Pier in Brighton, it's called 'Afloat' and is usually jammed with people wanting to take photos of it and also it makes a great feature to shot through it. 

If you want to catch a photo with no one in it headed there a little early, this was at 9am...Brighton doesn't get busy till 10am at the earliest even when the weather is beautiful.

This is the remarkable Prince Albert mural in Brighton. The Prince Albert is an iconic pub by the train station and was originally know for it's Banksy "Kissing Police" mural but now it also has this amazing wall of deceased icons.

#MySundayPhoto - Blue Skies

#MySundayPhoto - Blue Skies

One day of Spring and then rain the next, that seems to have been the theme for the past week. This was one of those dry days when we had blue skies and there was lush green grass. 

Now if we could have a nice spell of a few weeks like this we'd all be happy.
