Floral May

a pink Rhododendron bloom with blue sky

Cycling down to Alderley Edge – again

Just some random pictures from my ride to Alderley Park via Birtles Lane and returning via Hocker Lane. A really beautiful time of year for nature and general environmental conditions. Not to hot but comfortably warm. I love how everything looks so fresh and rejuvenated at this time of year, super green un-blighted foliage and the pretty colours of blossom and early flowing plants and shrubs.

A huge amount of geometric (wide angle) distortion here which is too difficult to correct in Rawtherapee. One day I will realise that very wide angle non-rectilinear lenses are best for shooting objects and structures at distance in wider contexts or settings!
