This year I have committed myself to going for weekly photo walks each weekend. A chance to learn about my camera, practice my photography, have some fresh air and unwind with out the children.
Yesterday I went out for the first time since getting my new camera at Christmas. Unfortunately I only had about 45 minutes before I was needed back at home but I made the most of the little time I had. I decided to follow the public footpath that is across the road from our house. It led to open fields and small muddy paths. I could see woodland and what appeared to be an old church in the distance. Sadly I didn't have time to explore that far yesterday but I am looking forward to going for family adventures across the field soon.
It felt good to be out in the sunshine in so much open space. It felt good to take some time for myself, even if only for a short while.
