We’ll see about that!

Seeking the ever-elusive pin-sharp pic …

Birds aren’t the best subject to practise on –
the little blighters are either too far away
or move too fast

you’re not close enough.”

Still life on the beach

unless the tide shoves them around/out of view)

Snowdrops

an industrial site
(all pretty much in focus)

    • It’s hard to drag yourself away from “A” for “awesome”! On a completely different subject – do you have any recommendations for a nice b&b in Clitheroe?

      • I have never stopped in one obviously but a friend stayed at Fifty One and a Half boutique b&b and said that was nice. Also in Clitheroe is The Old Post House Hotel and Holmes Mill has rooms at weekends in its Spinning Block that are nice . Lots of country pubs in nearby villages do bed and breakfast. X
