We're always on the lookout to visit new places and spend a day making new images. Sometimes just for the sake of it, sometimes with a more specific purpose in mind. A favourite subject of mine is Flowers and Plants, as you can see from my Portfolio, and just at the moment we are working our way through some of the Gardens of Cheshire that we may not have visited before.

Arley Hall is a perennial favourite and we even have season tickets. Many of the test pictures for the reviews I have done for ePHOTOzine have been shot in and around Arley.

Last week we explored the decay at Bluebell Cottage Gardens:

And yesterday it was the turn of Abbeywood Gardens:

Next on the list will be Stonyford Cottage Gardens, where we will be having a Q Day. Three of us will be armed with Pentax Q kits and Sue will unfortunately have to use her Olympus XZ-1. It's all about trying different things and stretching skills. It would be easier to use the Pentax DSLRs, but who needs things to be easy?

When we are out as a group, as a norm, Brother-in-Law Mark uses a K20D, his wife Diane uses a K10D and Sue and I have a K-5 each. Quite a little Pentax Family!

Here's Diane doing a spontaneous pose with her K10D:

But I digress...and I'll post another Blog entry in due course giving an update on our progress through the delightful Gardens of Cheshire.
