Beautiful day

It was a beautiful day today which couldn't be missed so we went out for a walk and to try out the new camera.
We have a National Trust property within walking distance where we regularly go for a walk from home.
The church was built in the grounds of the hall. It is so popular for weddings because of the setting that they now restrict it to those living in the parish. It is also the most expensive church in the area for weddings.
However, we often walk through the lych gate and up through the churchyard and into the NT Ormesby Hall grounds.
Today close to the church we saw daffodils and lots of snowdrops. Early for this area.

We have done this walk many ,many times and yet today noticed for the first time three crosses at the back of the church near the gate to the hall.
They were in the shade but took them anyway , hand held. very pleased with the results. Not the best they could be but.....

I have taken some close ups too. They were carved on all four sides.
On our way back through the grounds we saw a view of the church we don't see very often as it is hidden behind the trees when they are in leaf.

It is still a beautiful day so we are off out again to do some more photography and exercise!!!

Snap !!!
I took the D200 out for another trial trip (it's not mine yet) and we went to an NT property near where we live. it has a lake and lots of mature trees.(will post later if they worked)
The D300 seems to have behaved well with the crosses
very nice detail, especially for hand held, what lens did you use?
I love the church through the trees shot, very 'Reunzal'
with all those tress in front of it!
Glad you got the sample :-)
