#MySundayPhoto - Lake Windermere

#MySundayPhoto - Lake Windermere

Last week we spend a few days in the amazing Lake District, I took so many photos and still need to edit some of them. We stayed in Windermere and most days enjoyed a walk near Lake Windermere.

Laying on the beach with the waves crashing and the warm Summer sun beaming down. 

Ok it wasn't quite like that but this photo certainly feels like that. The truth is seagulls were swooping down trying to grab the chips that tourists had.

This might be one of my favourite photos for a long time. I just happened to be at the right place at the right time. 

I did plan on having a different image for #MySundayPhoto but I've torn the ligaments in my ankle which isn't ideal. 

#MySundayPhoto - Little Ladybird

I went out yesterday to a new location which was completely peaceful and calm. Full of open spaces and wildlife all around me. 

Whilst about to take a photo of the view I spotted this plant with lots of ladybirds happily enjoying the sunshine.

#MySundayPhoto - Alone with the Trees

This was a photo I took up on Ashdown Forest the other evening. It was completely peaceful and the whole time I was there I didn't see anyone else. 

There was plenty of rabbits, birds and deer but no humans. 

This was set to a long exposure with an ND filter, just to add a little more detail into the sky. 

We've not had any rain here for about 50 days now and it was so dry on the forest.

The other evening I planned on going to a new location for some photography. Right on the edge of the Ashdown Forest is this windmill that hardly anyone seems to know about. 

Typically the day I visited they had some form of party going on so I had to be creative with my photography.

#MySundayPhoto - Taking Your Time

I thought for this photo I'd try something a little different. It was a longer exposure of 6 seconds which I tend not to do on landscapes. 

It's created a different texture to the crops which I kind of like, there was a wind so they were moving. 

I would have liked a bit more movement in the clouds.

When walking around the countryside and the afternoon sunlight catches the meadow of flowers perfectly. 

With the bright blue background, it seems like the perfect summer scene. After walking back my eyes were streaming from hayfever, capturing this photo came at a price but it was certainly worth it. 

#MySundayPhoto - Hidden Fields

#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.

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

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.
