Many years ago I painted. Then I realised that I did better at photography than painting – and that has been my medium of expression ever since.

    well caught Bette — and a lovely painterly scene

  • Thanks, Harry. I had been meaning for years to investigate this spot – did it on my way home.

    This one definitely has a painterly feel, and the bird in flight really completes the image beautifully!

  • Yes, I was lucky with that bird – just the right spot and the wings in the right position! Am tempted to increase the painterly look by using the oil paint filter on a copy of this!
