A tree growing on the lawn in front of the farmhouse in New Moor Farm near the village of Southminster in Essex on a cold and frosty morning. This farm was the subject of a programme in the television series “Escape to the Country” . My fingers were freezing, while I was taking pictures, so much so that I accidentally modified the settings on my camera (too many whistles and bells!), so was very cross to find that it was saving the images as small instead of large! I do not know the identity of that awesome tree growing on the lawn in front of the farmhouse by the gate leading to the fields. If anyone can give me a positive ID, I would be most grateful. A horse chestnut has been suggested so far.
Camera details:- Canon PowerShot S3 IS on Auto.

My life is divided between teaching Music and Photography. The instruments I play are organ, piano, clarinet and saxophone. I taught German and Spanish before my retirement, but since I got my digital camera no longer have time for them!

    This is so pretty and serene. I would love to see it up close. Well captured.

  • Thank you, Rachel. If I had not accidentally altered the settings (still not sure how that happened), I could have enlarged the pictures, but there would not be enough pixels for that, I’m afraid.

    Great scene, and boy have I been down that path, accidentally muffing up the settings!

  • Thank you, Pamela. As a result I automatically choose the default settings before going on a photoshoot. I have no particular preferences, so that works out best for me on my main camera (still not got the hang of the new one yet!), and if I accidentally press any buttons, I return the settings to default before taking any more shots. When I – eventually – get the hang of the new camera, I might alter the settings on it, but keep them at default for my main one. The new camera has twice as many megapixels as Old Faithful, but the latter is better for flower photography and flowers are my main interest. Its main (perhaps its only) virtue is that it fits in my handbag
