Where I went today...
I just walked over the footbridge across the river, past the college where G works and round the by-pass to the old bridge at Llanelltyd -- and back again, of course. :)
After the awful weather this morning, the sky was typical April blue and white. It was still cold though and I needed my gloves.
The bridge is something of a local beauty spot and there's a caravan site just nearby. Also the remains of Cymer Abbey, which I visited once years ago, but I don't think I photographed. Being a weekday, there were very few people there, just me, a man walking a Dalmation and a young chap having a nap in his van.
I shot this as an attempt at practicing taking candid photos of people. I almost never take pictures of people and I should do it more.
Near the river, there was this tree with pretty blossom on it. I know, I'm hopeless at identifying plants and trees. I blame my inner city upbringing. Lots of people just seem to know the names of flowers. I have to laboriously look them up in books.
Before I went on my walk I took a few macro shots of this cactus thing that I saw reduced to half price in the Co-op yesterday. For £1.99 it seemed a bargain as it has lots of flower buds on it.
