Viewpoints walk

Day off? Don't mind if I do.

Chosen according to the Met Office forecast, the day was as warm, clear and sunny as they predicted.

What better than a cheeky 15 around South Derbyshire taking in some lovely views? (And chilling a bit)

Trying not to take the same ol' snowdrop picture

Mum and I were talking about how we tend to take point-and-click pictures when we walk. She laid down a challenge - we should get more creative and make it a competition.

So I put the thinking cap on for a while and came up with an effect that I wanted to try. Not an original idea but I'll take full credit for the execution:

Fantastic day for walking today and with the snowdrops in full effect it would have been wrong not to nip over to Dimminsdale on the Derbyshire / Leicestershire border. A round trip to Breedon Church made it a nice 6-mile leg-stretch.
