Ducks To Dawn

By MrsS    
Good Evening everyone, hope you are all well Smile

MrS & I have had a rather eventful weekend!

Started off on Friday night - went along to a super restaurant in Southport and after a wonderful meal, we booked it for our wedding "do" Smile

Then yesterday, we decided to go for an "Over-nighter" in the Lakes (weather forecast was better there than Norf Whales, and we don't get out much these days!) Wink

So, after a brief sojourn at Keswick, a play at Lodore jetty for sunset, a couple of beers at the Swinside Inn and 4 hours "sleep" in the car - we arrived somewhat bleary eyed at Brandlehow!

Mother nature was kind, and the ducks were around to keep us company (so were the midges!) Smile

Anyway, here's one from there, I think you may need to settle down for the long haul as I had real problems choosing just one for tonight, hope you don't get bored too quickly! Grin

Thanks, as always, for your time Smile

BTW - I've processed this in Lightroom, and would welcome comments re that - since I have just about found my way round it - but basically scrambling in the dark!

Nice one, mamselle. One tip about lightroom - there is a help screen of all the key shortcuts under Help> X module help. Very useful too Smile
