Pow Hill Nature Reserve ~ Sept 2017~ part 2

Part 1 HERE

We had to walk back the same way we came, so I decided to put the macro lens on and see what I could find,

forget-me-nots

but soon changed back to the telephoto, the water was too enticing, and other stuff was going on,

Caught in The Actย 

the sheep were off to get a drink

The Great Escape

 

Red & Ginger

 

When we got back we trogged up the hill to the newly opened cafe

delicious home made soup for lunch

and a lovely view over Derwent Water

The little cabin is for hire, the people who run the cafe also run a Glamping site which has got great reviews on their facebook page, hot tubs, clear ceilings for star watching etc. Their website is HEREย and you can see the different cabins and book a stay if you so desire.

after lunch Sophie and I decided to explore the woodlands behind the cafe

time to revisit the macro lens

Mellow Yellow

 

Liking the Lichen

 

Not mushroom left

 

and admire the views of the heather covered meadows

before making our way back to the car.

Extra lusciousness can be seen in the full album HERE

Stay tooned for our next outing, to Jarrow Hall, the Bede Museum and Medieval Village

    1. The same way you draw stuff, practice,practice,practice, and learning the tools you have to use. One day in this life you and I will go on a photo shoot to Conamarra beach and I’ll show you ๐Ÿ˜Š. ( think it’s conamarra but anyways it’s that gorgeous beach you shot a while back!)

    1. Some places are ripe for a pano, not that often I come across them but this place was a shoe-in! Cheers Pete

      1. Despite having that facility on three digital cameras, I have still not tried it. No idea why…

        1. I don’t use the pano function on the Fuji, you get better results taking several upright shots and stitching them in Lightroom.
