This afternoon I went down to near by Dunham Massey. Dunham is a lovely little village, pretty little church, post office and a half a dozen houses. The main reason for me visiting was the go into Dunham Park. I visited here many times as a child but since getting my first digital camera I never have had the time to go back for photographs. It has been a nice day and there were hundreds of people in the park, lots of wild Fallow Deer roaming the 250 acre estate. Here is one of the Deer. I like to think he was smiling!
On the journey back from the Zoo we stopped at a local ice cream farm shop. In one of the fields they have a new sculpture each year made from bales of hay that they would normally feed to the cattle. It was taken whilst I was hanging out of the car window. Snugbury’s Farm sells really nice ice cream, its a little like an English Ben n Jerrys. I think their version of the London Eye made from hay is really cool.
I took the photo on a walk around the castle in the evening. Spent most of the day exploring the major shopping areas of the city but the evening was spent wandering around with the digital camera. As soon as I saw this merry-go-round or carousel in the grounds below Edinburgh Castle I knew it had to be photographed. This image was capture at 8:10 in this evening. I am really loving these long summer evenings.
I had obviously read and seen a lot of information about Venice before I went but it wasn’t until flying home that I saw this, the Lido. It is an 11 mile long sandbar which is where a lot of Venetians go for their summer holidays, or at least that was traditionally where they went. Aerial photography has always been something of interest too me even though I rarely get the opportunity to take pictures from a plane.
