A lovely evening

My favourite time of year is when Mark gets in from work and we can walk the dog wearing lighter clothing and enjoying the kind of light that winter never sheds. And as mid spring unfurls its magic, I see a different perspective of the Three Sisters park that we frequent through all seasons. I hate the bleak winter scenes it can offer and I hate the summer scene too (because of nasty horse flies that bite chunks from your arms and legs) But autumn and spring make me fall in love with walking all over again.

I cant help but take pics of lovely little sights that fill me with happiness even though I had a horrible, horrible morning and possibly a crappier afternoon. But come 5.30pm and the turn of the lock, the whine of the pooch, the smile of a child and the relief of a wife - well, that all soon melted away.

Enjoy my walk with me.

Hundreds of dandelion clocks...... you can't help but pick and blow them

My boys

Beautiful 197o's light - i don't know why it reminds me of the 70's, i can barely remember them ;)

I had no idea that Horse Chestnut trees had such beautiful blossoms

I love having my face dappled in light from big leafy trees

My god, I can't believe I get excited about fern. They are so majestic

Lightly shaded blue and white bells......simple and elegant

Little nooks and crannies that keep our walks interesting

Various shades of green combined with sunlight make for a myriad of spectacular tones

Long and leafy pathways drenched in a wonderful glow

The sun is forecast for a few more days so make hay..............

Stunning photography Kirsty. I agree with the last comment, there are an abundance of dandelions this year. My mum says it's because of the harsh winter and it's also why the blossom is so good this spring.

Thanks for that Kirsty I enjoyed that - your photos are stunning - I'm interested in photography (but don't look at the photos on my blog! - as I've got a LOT to learn! - roll on photo course in July!) But I love looking at the different perspectives, light and focus point of your photos - just brill!

Lovely photos. I want to walk in those trees right this minute. It's so so pretty! I love the pattern of sunlight, and how the path feels so cosy and close.
