Places - Roundhay Park, Leeds

Thank heavens for SatNavs, the one and only way to defeat the Mangled Machinations of the road designers in Leeds.....after a not impossible journey we arrived at Roudhay Park, more specifically at Tropical World, with Granddaughter Amelia in tow. We knew it would be hot in the glasshouses from last time, but it didn't actually seem that bad, perhaps we have become used to the heat these past few days. Stock levels of butterflies and birds were a bit low, but no doubt that is because of the pandemic closure. However, it was all good and Amelia enjoyed it all and we managed to shoot some images. I was using the Pentax K-1 full frame DSLR with the HD Pentax-D FA 28-105mm WR lens. So first some images from Tropical World:

Then we wandered up towards the Mansion, taking in the speciality gardens on the way. There were also a couple of wedding shoots going on, so I pinched a couple of quick candids as well. The kit was expanded to include the SMC Pentax-FA J 75-300mm and the SMC Pentax-F 17-28mm Fisheye Zoom. This is quite useful, being compact and a full frame fisheye at 17mm, gradually becoming more rectilinear as we approach 28mm.
