Connaught Water – 48

An early morning walk in Epping Forest took us to Connaught Water, a large stretch of water near Chingford.

Not great light, but thankfully the rain held off. The second image is of some tree branches close to the water – a 25 second exposure taken with a ‘big stopper’ filter to give the water that soft, creamy look.

Thank you to IWM and Darren Harbar, our mentor for the day.
I understand that this is the Mk 1A Spitfire recovered from the beaches of Dunkirk and rebuilt.
The rebuild was recorded on a television programme with Guy Martin.

Fallow Deer at Richmond Park

Yesterday we made an early morning trip to Richmond Park to see the deer.

And we were not disappointed. It was a beautiful morning ( apart from the traffic! ), and the deer were about in large numbers!
