I am the lazy person that when someone says to me ‘lets go for a walk’ I turn my nose up at it. I don’t know if it’s just a lazy habit I’ve gotten into since suffering with depression but I just think ‘I can’t be bothered, how boring’. On bank holiday Monday my mum said she wanted to go for a walk with everyone down at a place called ‘eye bridge’ near where I live, as everyone else in the house was going and I’d be home alone bored if I didn’t I decided to go. It was lovely spring weather and I am glad I went, I enjoyed the views, watching my dog run around, seeing some animals and taking pretty pictures. I need to say yes to more outings rather than automatically saying no, once I’m out I usually have a good time. I took full advantage of the beautiful weather and views and took some pictures, I am no photographer but I am pretty proud of how they turned out. I haven’t had much of a chance to use my camera for taking photos of things other than beauty products etc, so it was nice to experiment with my camera and taking photos of things I don’t usually!
The views from standing on the bridge!
My beautiful pooch enjoying the walk and enjoying splashing around in the muddiest puddles she could find, white fur and mud don’t mix well! I always think she looks so beautiful in the sun and I love watching her mischievously run into mud and try to run into the river, she’s too cute ?
I saw this heron flying around at various points during our walk and I really wanted to take a picture and I finally was able to and although it’s probably not the best picture, I am so pleased with it!
I got a little snap happy when it came to the ducks, I think the male ducks are so pretty, no offence to any female ducks out there, your pretty to!
When I was taking the below picture I thought ‘well this is rubbish you can’t even see the colours and detail on the duck’ but I actually love how this picture turned out with all the shadows and the slight silhouette effect of the duck and its reflection in the water!
Action shot of a duck doing its duck thang (haha). This picture was a total accident, I didn’t even realise the duck moved until after!
The moral of the story is be more adventurous, stop saying no to things before you have given them a chance, 9 times out of 10 you will enjoy it once you get there.
