When you have a new toy you just have to go out and play! Keen to try and use my camera properly I’ve been heading out at every opportunity to learn it’s potential and mine!

A video compilation and some photos from a couple of local walks, one on Merbach Hill and one to Longtown back in September and October. I’ve posted walks a few times for these so if you want read up you can check them out at the links at the bottom of this post

  4. Nice photos! Great to see that you’re enjoying your new toy.
    The weird fungus is fly argaric – toxic and hallucinatory. I may have bored you before with the Laps and reindeer pee story?
    The yellow flower is not celandine, but I’m afraid I can’t give you an alternative ID.

    • I’m getting better, got some decent snaps from yesterday if you check out my Facebook page or my Flickr site. I remember Fly Agaric but never knew it looked like that.

      I expect an answer on the yellow flower within 24 hours! 🙂
