3. Then up the yellow brick road, we are not in Kansas now Toto.
4. Never saw this before, a mental note to return and mooch more around here.
5. Passing the Coppice as we ascended.
6. Looking back to the reservoirs.
7. Looking over to the windtwistles, with a Kestrel in hover mode.
8. Kings Highway, a short pause whilst I re-inflate my lungs.
9. Spotted this as we mooched around what used to be "Gamblers Caves" now just a hole in the ground.
10. This is a new one to me, or someone has dropped a surgical glove
Usually one of our weekend walks when we can walk from home and back and dry off at home.No 1 is just inside the gates to Arden Hall isn't it?

Re: Today in pictures

We didn't go out today but I wanted to try out the new camera.
I part exchanged the old camera body and the macro lens for the new camera body.
I had got fed up with the macro lens very soon after I bought it.
Anyway I took a few photos in my garden using a 300mm lens and standing four feet from the subject. I think I have got better results than I did with the macro lens.
The photos are straight off the card, no tweaking. ISO 800 f 5.6 1/4 second, manual focus, steady hand.
I am happy with my first pictures with the camera and a new (to me) way of taking small objects.

It is, and the fungi shots that are five paces from the car are behind the left wall where the gates are.

Re: Today in pictures

As long as it doesn't involve walking Dave I will take pictures of anything.
I will leave that to you.
By using the long lens instead of the macro I don't have to struggle to get up again after the shot.

Most photos are for my own enjoyment but a few of my transport photos have made it into magazines. My first was a drying frame for a cotton mill I helped to make in 1962.

Re: Today in pictures

Today in Picture, a more horizontal perambulation today, the canal with a bit of mooching.

1.Looking left as we head for Fosters Swing Bridge.
2. And here it is.
3. Snowberry, or something that requires cream rubbing on it.
4. A quarter of the way around and a bath required already.
5. A beech leaf turning brown for the winter, with woody nightshade berries.
6. Mooching around S. Mary's burial ground, I've got fungi coming out of my ears. Plus a wickthing for the same price.
7. Peak-a-boo.
8. A bunch of brown ones.
9. I went all dizzy when I found these, a giant one and many twee ones.
10. Looking from St Mary's over to Pendle.

With that my allocation has run out, so will not be able to show you the photo I got of a wild unicorn, or the griffin carrying off a sheep, perhaps tomorrow.

Re: Today in pictures

Have returned from a few days away in Bologna - it's famous for it's collonades so I thought I'd start by showing you a variety of them across the town.

1-3 are in the area of Piazza Santo Stefano (my favourite place in Bologna)
4-7 the area of Porta Nova
8-10 Piazza Maggiore - fireworks at night for the town's Festa of San Petronius

Your pics make me "Accy" sick - wouldn't mind a good walk round the area on a nice day - looks like you had one today! You still don't seem to have found any of those mushrooms yet.

Note: I was gonna say home sick but Accy's not my home anymore!

Nice arches, glad your back, we wondered where you were.

I think if you view the thread from the very start, most areas of town have been covered, some you probably didn't know about, well I didn't until I walked them. And to answer the mushroom hunt, I did find one, but it was such a poor specimen I didn't want to use it with posting restrictions, so will put that on the back burner for now.

It's nice to see food on open display like that rather than packaged to death in a supermarket. Went to Bury market on Sat for the first time and I felt the same there - black puddings, cheese, pies, meat and fish all there for you to look at and select and be served by a human...

Is that your aunt in pic 3??
