These were taken using a Pentax MX-1. They are camera JPEGs with a few adjustments in PaintShop Pro.

1. Footpath to the wood:

2. Spring blossom:

3. The woodland floor:

4. Silent bells:

Comments always welcome.

All the best to everyone.

Nice set Philip - that opening shot really entices you to go on in

It's a great little camera the MX-1 - couldn't manage to sell mine a few months back, maybe I'll take it ou on my next wander

Very nice. I like the blossom. Lovely backdrop, lovely light, spot-on focus and depth of field. I haven't been able to get a decent blossom shot yet as it's been so windy whenever I've been out.

The blossom is a lovely one.
Both the *istDS and the K5 are incurably addicted to old glass

Bluebells are always such a great subject

I struggled with the MX-1 not having a viewfinder, but you have mastered it here.

Thankfully those of us lucky enough to live in beautiful surroundings can still indulge ourselves with our woodland walks... Once a day of course!

Thanks for that little peek Philip. I have still been able to find a number of quiet and isolated places in the hills and woodlands around here, so our lot have not really been locked down. It's a lovely spring so far as well, just a bit spoilt by the surreal world we inhabit at present and general anxieties.
