Last year I started running to get fit.  I felt great until I got a baker’s cyst and my leg swelled up like a balloon.  I’ve started feeling unfit and lethargic again so in a bid to get healthy I’ve started doing some serious walking. Four to five miles at a time at a decent pace, and feeling better for it already.  Normally it is just me, earphones and decent podcast.  But one of the almost unexpected side affects, whilst I try to find new routes and explore is finding interesting subjects.  So the photographer in me is mentally recording possible shots to come back to another time.

A couple of weeks ago the camera went with me and I was fortunate to see Buzzards and butterflies, as well as a couple of pre-conceived shots I had in mind.  The only downside to carrying and stopping for photography is my pace goes out the window!  

My local and regular walk is turning into Carn Marth, with a good elevation it gets the heart rate going and the views are spectacular.  I’m thinking this might be start of a collection focusing on this beautiful area.
