This Morning !
The summer weather seems to be bypassing us this year, though according to the latest weather forecast it should brighten up on Thursday, good job as I’m out with the PhotoBuddies.
#2 of last weeks outing to Bradgate Park, I thought the images suited converting to Black & White.
This old tree reminded me of a dancer.
If Summer ever arrives I’m looking forward to photographing more of the park, It would be good to give the old Rolleiflex an outing.
Now I have my new set of wheels I went out for a drive with my PhotoBuddies to Bradgate Park (interesting Wiki link) It’s been ages since I last visited the park, and I really missed going there.
I took along a film camera and my old Olympus E620 Digital with the standard zoom. We were lucky with the weather yesterday, well it was dry and warm at least. It’s been like late autumn over the last few weeks (it is today) dull and wet, will we ever have a summer this year ?
Tree & Dry Stone Wall
I suppose the one plus point for having so much rain recently is that everything is very green and fresh looking.
Dry Stone Wall Detail
Some of the exposed rocks in the park are an incredible 560 million years old.
There are some lovely old trees in the park and I can’t resist photographing them, I’ll put them in the next post.
