Haigh Plantations

I spent an hour in the lower Plantations on a very bright Spring morning.

The trees and vegetation are still quite bare, and a lot of clearing of the Rhododendrons has taken place, so there are good sections of shadows and light to photograph.

Long Wall Wood In Spring Sunshine

I had a walk through Long Wall Wood, part of the Winstanley Estate grounds in the morning sunshine, looking for signs of Spring growth.

I used two manual lenses on my Fuji X-E2, firstly a Meyer-Optik Gorlitz Lydith 30mm, then an Itorex 135mm. I've split the images into groups based on these two lenses.

Billinge Hill in Spring Sunshine

Josie and I had a walk around the Billinge Hill area in the warm Spring sunshine, the trees are still bare, the Bluebells aren't yet out in the woods, the crops are just sprouting and the air is still clear and fresh without any haze.
