  My visit to Flatford today was to try and take photos with 'lead in ' lines.  It was a cold, cloudy morning but i think I achieved my aim. The best of the bunch!

Holywell's Park, Ipswich

  Holywell's Park is a public park in Ipswich.  It covers an area of 67 acres.  It is a County Wildlife Site, a Conservation Area with two listed buildings – the Stable Block and Conservatory – and is on the English Heritage Register of Historic Parks and Gardens of Special Historic Interest. Holywells has been designated a Regionally Important Geodiversity Site (RIGS). It has a long history dating back to Medieval times. The Cobbold family purchased Pitt's Farm in 1811 for the spring water for their brewery business. It was the Cobbbold's who renamed it Holywell's Park. They later sold it on to the local council.

Mark's Hall

My visit to Mark's Hall today was to see the snowdrop display and also to try and get some photos with some good 'lead in' lines. Dog Wood Trees I thought these striking Dog Wood trees with the path running between created a good lead in line. Meandering Stream The stream that meanders from the rushes at the bottom of the image to the bridge towards the top of the image was my next try at lead in lines.  I then realised the path to the side was also leading to the bridge from a different direction.  I think this caused to much confusion. Snowdrops through the woods My next image with lead in lines was the path through the woods with snowdrops on either side.  I thought this worked well. Snowdrops in the woods More snowdrops I left the snowdrop area to go and explore the Australasian area.  I love the smell of the eucalyptus trees and the way the bark peels off the trees rather than shedding its leaves.
