Still struggling to get through April, with the knowledge that I have taken getting on for 1,000 photos since then: combination of new camera, regular trips out into Somerset and Devon countryside and my garden going into overdrive.
Today, starting with 19 April and a trip north to East Quantoxhead, where the foothills of the Quantock Hills dip down into the Bristol Channel
