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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
