Well, it's that time of year again; time to view the splendour of spring flora, and in particular the colourful bluebells in our wooded hideaways.
So, like many others my wife and I took the short journey to the area around Roseberry Topping where we know we will be able to see and capture great photographs of these colourful flowers.
Another trip to the Lakes to take advantage the glorious winter weather saw us navigating from Coniston to Wast Water, Hardknott Pass and one of favourite places, Ambleside. Very poor weather spoiled play but we did manage a couple of nice photographs

We have just returned from a trip to Keswick in the Lake District.
Snow capped mountains and frosty hazy mornings made for some great atmospheric photographs around the local area including lake Derwent Water.
Sunrise Over Derwent WaterEvery time we visit Derwent Water we walk to our favourite locations to take another photograph but with different lighting. I'm always hoping at each visit the weather will look on us favourably and that elusive best shot of a lifetime will open up before our eyes. Here's hoping.
The robin illustrated in this photograph was so tame I'm sure I heard it tweet cheese when I pointed my camera his way!
