I'm out every day with the dog and generally rather enjoy the walks, it rains a fair bit and I moan at him for wanting to be out sometimes but if nowt else its keeping me healthy.

 

It also means I tend to take with me and use my camera every day. I'm three months into the second year of a 365 project and I'd imagine I'll just keep it running as there are very few days I struggle to take a picture of something. The trick though is not only to have a camera with you but also to be in the mindset of looking for shots the whole time. I did this the other night. Jasper and I were wandering through the local park at about 7pm having just dropped the youngest off at football and needing to fit the daily walk in before I picked him back up, made sure he had a shower, put him to bed then make dinner before settling down to rest my feet - I'd been out working all day so frankly was knackered.

 

These aren't exceptional shots by any stretch of the imagination but they do capture a moment in the year and a certain time of the day when the sun is going down and the colours all soften that I wouldn't have got if my camera wasn't with me.

Nice. We still have snow yet.

Thanks, Dennis.

Nice, Robin.

 

I'm glad that it's Spring somewhere.  After one of the wettest months on record, April is continuing the lousy weather trend.  <_<  :(
