My pictures are taken with a Sony DSC-HX1. What you see is pretty much what comes from the memory card, with maybe a touch of rotation and or cropping.
I probably wouldn’t be taking so many pictures if it weren’t for the camera. It has been worth every penny as it has captured some great memories since I got it in 2009.
Feel free to comment on any of the pictures. I’m all for learning how to improve.

    Apart from the crick in the neck to look at these, a lovely find. I did not know they were now protected species

  • They have been protected since 1998. It’s not very well publicised, which is unfortunate.
    As for the angle, just thought I’d try something different. I was trying to just get the bluebells agains the sky, but couldn’t get right in to the hedge bottom as it was hawthorn and as its name suggests, it was thorny. So went for half sky half hedge.
