It was another dull and miserable day today, so I didn’t go outside looking for a photograph. As always when you least expect to find a photo opportunity, I came across this beautiful sight in a car park! Luckily I had my compact camera with me – which just goes to shows a photographer should always carry a camera everywhere!

These cherry-sized crab apples really brightened up the gloom and was surprised the birds hadn’t eaten them.

On such a grey, damp day it was difficult to find something to photograph. This colourful old wall, covered in moss and lichen attracted my attention and I am pleased with the resulting depth of field and perspective.
