House sitting holiday

My in-laws let us house sit their house for while. Living in Cheshire it meant we could go to North Wales as well as Cheshire so we went and explored.

We found tiny railways, a small suspension bridge, ice cream, a lake, the museum of science and industry (Mosi) and Little Moreton Hall. The tiny railway is Rudyard Lake Steam Railway which is built on some of the run of the actual full-size railway that ran back in the day. It wasn’t running when I was there which is a shame but we had a good walk round the lake anyway.

Mosi is a cracking museum and newly refurbished, it looks at the industrial heritage of Britain but mainly around the North West so I took a snapshot of the exhibits. I used some lighting changes to help the viewer to look at these photos and focus on what I’m focusing on when I take the shot.

And then we have Little Moreton Hall, a cracking little National Trust property situated not too far from Congleton, Cheshire – I took a shot from the attic to the grounds below and then in photoshop gave it the tilt-shift treatment… I think it looks good so let me know what you think.

Just want to say this blog is getting quite popular so thanks very much for reading and if you like it don’t be scared to share it with your mates. As ever all these shots are taken by a Nikon D3000 with a 18-55mm VR lens.

Next time you will have coloured bears! I kid you not…
