Nice Day 19 photos, Tony.
Nice river shots.
I love that ice cream van. Looks like a vintage auto from the 1920's.
Very nice park entrance. I bet it was a nice park inside.
Very nice donkey and I bet that you didn't make an ass out of yourself shooting it.
That cathedral does have a look of grandeur.
Looks like another productive day for you.
Cheers, Murray

Thanks Wolf, you're right, I'm not adverse to wandering into unknown areas, I don't know what took me so long to explore this area. Glad I did though, expect a plethora of Cathedral shots from this angle in the future

That ol' ice cream truck looks sooo cool.
Those gate posts beat the heck out of my loose, leaning fence posts!
Thank you Tom, they do make a statement don't they, may be a tad overpowering outside my little shack though

Cute little donkey there...did it give rides to children?
Nice looking cathedral too!
Thank you George, I think it was a companion donkey to the tiny Shetland pony that was in the field too, they certainly attracted the children and the young ladies though

Those flower shots are excellent. Rich color, great contrast, detail, and DOF. Flowers are wonderful to shoot in that light.
I really like that silver birch shot and its composition. I bet it would look great in B&W as well.
That Mill is neat and I bet it would make a great HDR subject.
That water mill feed shot is also really neat. The line of vertical slim trees is really cool.
That's a lot of beauty for Day 18.
Cheers, Murray

Lovely selection of birds today, Tony.

Cool capture of the Dunnock drying in the sun. Love the Goldfinch & Yellowhammer shots. Awesome sharpness & dof in all the shots.

Looking forward to seeing more Cathedral shots, Tony. I love those old churches as we don't have much of the old architecture around here.

Very nice set of our fine feathered friends, Tony. All of them colorful and well focused. Do you have a bunch of feeders hung out or is there something else that attracts them?
Cheers, Murray

Thank you Wolf, it's good to get some reasonable light in the back garden at last, most of the winter that area is in deep shade from the house

Thank you Murray, I like to think it's my amazing magnetic personality, but have to admit it's more likely to be the 6 feeders I have scattered about the garden
