Where I really went...

Yesterday I just did one of my regular local walks. The weather was unexpectedly sunny, so I took a few photos.

Old Barn

I quite liked this shot. I'm vaguely thinking of doing the Royal Photographic Society's LRPS qualification and this was taken with a view to including in the panel of 10 photos. I probably need slightly more interesting light, but otherwise I like the shot.

I took this lopsided tree for a competition thread on Flickr with the topic Asymmetry.

Bridge at Llanelltyd

I keep taking photos of this bridge. I think I've done better shots of it.

Gold leaf

I will post about today's walk tomorrow because I'm tired and I want to go and slump in front of the TV for the evening, but as teaser, I'll just say that I visited Castle of Carbonec, or at least it is the mostly likely contender for the honour of being the Grail castle. There may be photos, but don't hold your breath, the weather wasn't good.
