Spring Flowers.

The first photo's I've taken this year, a few Spring flowers just opening in my garden. 

It's been quite a while since my last post but a few days of sunshine encouraged the flowers to start opening and got me out into my garden.

Cold & foggy now so don't know when this will be repeated!

Tete a Tete daffodil.

HAPPY NEW YEAR.

 Wishing everyone a Happy New Year.

I came across a few pictures from 2020 that I hadn't posted yet so I include one or two here.  

They were, by necessity, pictures taken in my garden during the pandemic. 



Sunset in my garden.  Pictures taken Aug 2020 at 20:47.
A reminder of summer.

Film Scans from my Archives. (Set 3).

 During the latest "Lockdown" I'm unable to get out & about so I looked into my archives and found an old CD with a few scanned slide and negative film images.

These are three very eclectic images with nothing in common.

(Apologies if I've used these pics in earlier blog posts.) 

This is "Marnie", a favourite model when I used to take 
a lot of portraits in my home studio.  She was one of my daughter's
schoolfriends and a lovely model.
(Taken on my Pentax Spotmatic + 105 Takumar Lens).

A very stormy day on Derwent Water in the English Lake District.  Taken from a ferry
crossing the lake, looking towards "the Jaws of Borrowdale". 

Sunflowers in my back garden.

 The above two pics taken on my Olympus OM1n + 35-75 Zuiko Lens.

The South Quay at Grimsby Fish Dock, taken on a very cold & foggy day.

A closer view of the previous scene.
Photography is no longer allowed on Grimsby Dock, something I really miss.

Elterwater with Langdale Pike in the distance in the English Lake District.

Taken many years ago, no Exif details to fall back on but I'm fairly
confident these pics were taken on an Olympus OM1n + 35-75 Zuiko lens.

Beesby Wood, in the Lincolnshire Wolds.

Bradley Woods, near Grimsby.
This was a popular technique back in the day,
smearing an old UV filter with Vaseline.

The last pics before the "Lockdown".

 These are the last few images taken before the "Lockdown" we are now in.




"Top Farm" Beesby.  Now deserted following it's farm sale recently.





A group of walkers, the view is from the Lincolnshire Wolds, out over the Humber Estuary.

We can't go out now until the latest Lockdown ends, stay safe.

Some pics from just before the 2nd "Lockdown".

  These Pictures were taken shortly before we went into our 2nd "Lockdown".

My garden is almost finished for this year.




I featured this old barn a while ago.  It's now undergoing restoration.


The Ram on the left is giving me a threatening stare.

An old Horse Chestnut tree, it's "companion" was destroyed in storms last year.
