Where I really went...

Just another short local walk. I actually went hoping to take photos.

For one of the weekly groups the theme is a diptych and I was thinking of trying to capture different aspects of spring. I therefore put the telephoto/macro lens on the camera in the hope of lambs (distant) and snowdrops (need macro). I found neither. To be honest, I wasn't very hopeful because the farmers round here tend to lamb late with the sheep having their lambs out in the fields rather than indoors in a lambing shed.

The only thing that caught my eyes was the ruined barn that I've photographed several times before. Sadly, I think some more of the roof has come down this winter. Because I had the wrong lens on the camera for views, I just snapped a couple of shots with the phone.
