Out for a walk

    Inspired by @Geren as usual, here's a few of the 'landscape' on my walk today (started in town, walked to Attenborough Nature Reserve and then walked back along the Trent).

    Fast snaps, just to make sure I was looking around as I walked rather than having my head down!

    Some processed, some not.

    A livery stable not far from us (literally on the edge of the town)

    Attenborough Nature Reserve - not a great landscape shot, but still a great landscape considering how close it is to us

    All these are onsite at Attenborough.

    More Trent, with the Ratcliffe-on-Soar power station in the background.

    Long stretches of the walk are like this, about 20 feet from the Trent, no sign of civilisation in any direction despite being almost in the middle of two towns.

    And that tiny spire in the distance is Attenborough village, as viewed from the Trent across the nature reserve.

    That small tortoiseshell has seen some action.

    And I only posted it because at 800px it almost looks like it might have once been in focus ;) I had my little EOS m50, the 15-45mm lens, and I was holding the camera at arms length over the foliage and praying I'd get something even barely useable.

    That's a lovely walk. It reminds me a little of when I lived near Cambridge and used to walk/cycle along public footpaths across fields from Histon to Madingley or down to Duxford. Those were the days!
