Yesterday, as it was one of the first sunny, Spring days of the year, I went for a walk in Ashton Court Estate with my friend Nathan.
We started off admiring the view back over the river Avon to Bristol.
I was admiring the shadows of these trees, and then two walkers strolled into the picture. For me, they really made the picture work, and I much prefer this version of the picture to the one without the people.
Then we got down to the substance of the day. This week’s Photo Challenge is wildlife, so I tried to take some photos of deer. They were pretty far away from the fence so these are the best I could get with the equipment I had on me. The harsh middle-of-the-day sunlight doesn’t really help these pictures in my opinion, either. One of these pictures will probably be my entry.
As we were leaving, I saw this composition spring together.
All in all, a very pleasant day out. It was great to enjoy some sunshine, some fresh air, and a good dose of exercise 🙂

You were at Ashton Court on Sunday?
So was I, probably even at about the same time (I think I was there from about 12:30-2pm) I couldn’t get anywhere near the red deer, and couldn’t remember where the other herd are.
I gave up and went to the Zoo, but wasn’t really happy with anything I shot there – so my entry this week is a squirrel 😦
According to my camera data, I was there approx 12-2pm. Didn’t see you!
