Do you fancy a photo' walk?

I was ill and therefore stuck indoors for a very long time even before my current 'lockdown'. One of the things that kept my spirits up was looking at the wonderful photographs of my local town that people kindly posted.

So, I wondered if you would like to take us on a 'photo walk' of where you live? The photo's here have all been taken, not by me, but within easy walking distance of my home. (All taken during permitted exercise.)

1. My road
2. A walk above the town
3. A favourite view

Lovely Devon lanes full of spring colour & lams in the fields

Nope... beyond my capabilities... I transferred to my ipad, chose a photo, clicked on Gransnet then there's the whole password palarvar and then the phone went and then I lost any motivation I ever had....
Sorry. It's a good idea.

Wow! You all live at some beautiful places and thank you for posting. On my next walk out I will take some photos and post them, if I can remember how to load them.

My regular river walk.

I thought I'd walk the golf course round the corner and found it deserted so will make a nice detour there on my daily walk

Beautiful pics everyone. Keep posting them. So lovely to see. Unfortunately I can’t post pics as I’m in solitary confinement and not allowed to go walking

And there it is!!!!!!!!!! Somebody starts a lovely thread showcasing photos and one mean minded individual has to spoil it with a grammar lesson! How mean and pathetic can people get?!?!?!?!

Only spoilt if you let it. Step over and Keep posting your photos. IT'S 's a lovely idea. Some people cant' or wont go out so its nice to see the world even if it is from a photo

Thank you for all your lovely photographs. I am very envious of all the green spaces and woodland walks.

This is not from my walk today because I choose not to but it is from my walk last year so I'll hold that memory

My husband took this photo whilst walking the dog early this morning along the canal path on the edge of our village. If you look closely on the right hand side you can see a barn owl in flight.

Well I've tried 3 times but can't upload photos. I'll try again later after I've picked my phone up off the floor😖

This is one of the field walks around our village.

May7 Tue 07-Apr-20 12:57:22

Then it works grrrrr. It's of the welsh coastal path between Criccieth and Llanbedrog

Keep trying May7 - I lived in North Wales for years and would love to see your photos.

TrendyNannie6 Tue 07-Apr-20 13:41:37

Fantastic pics everyone. Thanks so much for posting

AlfiesGM Tue 07-Apr-20 13:49:59

This is where my dd and I are walking at the moment, it’s within walking distance of our house, but before the lockdown we’d never been here! It’s now our go to place for peace and quiet, we’ve never seen a soul here

Heather51 Tue 07-Apr-20 13:53:46

Lovely photos. Another one here not allowed out of the house, so really appreciate seeing the beautiful countryside around you all. Don’t think I’d get similar photos here in Essex but there are still some lovely areas. Thank you all.

Flygirl Tue 07-Apr-20 13:57:43

Well I am in Essex, too, and it is a beautiful county! I have the most lovely bluebell wood behind my house. If I can work out hòw to upload the photo I will post it.

Flygirl Tue 07-Apr-20 13:58:02

Yay! Worked it out!
