Sunkissed My favourite poppy image taken over the years . On a gorgeous evening with low backlit sun, I used a telephoto lens to enable me to use shallow depth of field and give a soft focus to the background . This is great in print and I have it hung in my hallway . #raw_community_member #red #bestukpics #raw_flowers #poppies #fieldsofred #bokeh #nikon #nikon70_200f2.8 #wildflowers #nature_brilliance #scenicbritain

This was the Tontine Inn, described in Alfred Gatty’s ‘Sheffield Past and Present’ from 1873 as the ‘finest secular structure in Sheffield’ of its time. Built at a cost exceeding £4,000 around 1785, this brick built inn had two large courtyards, stabling for many horses, public rooms for meetings and social gatherings and of course many private rooms to rest a weary head. Apart from offering overnight accommodation to the traveller it was the epicentre for business meetings, for the upper echelons of society and where the ‘gentry and magistrates of the surrounding district occasionally met their citizen acquaintances at social gatherings’. It is described as matching the grand hotels of Convent Garden. Its failure was almost immediate, for when the Midland Railway passed through Sheffield a coaching inn was no longer a requirement as the traveller could reach his destination in one day. The businessman arriving by train looked for accommodation immediately next to the train station (which is where the Royal Victoria succeeded in 1862) instead of traipsing in to town. The Tontine, which was located between Dixon Lane and Exchange Street, was eventually demolished in 1850, another relic at Sheffield’s historic heart lost to the ravages of time.

Ventured out on Saturday morning for the first time in about 10 weeks - other than a few local woodland wanderings - not looking for anything other than just getting back out, with the camera in hand, and enjoying the feeling of fresh air and a bit of 'freedom' - the 3am start was a struggle to say the least, but after setting off, I was really looking forward to it. Thought I'd try this old tree at Great Salkeld in the Eden Valley, and it didn't disappoint with some lovely pre sunrise colour. I took another image from the same place about an hour later after sunrise, which I'll post later, and they couldn't be more different. Hopefully I'll get back out again soon, but I'm still not planning on going too far from home - we're by no means out of this yet 😊😊 stay safe 👍🏼 #bbcneandcumbria #edenvalley #cumbriaguide #cumbria #colourfulsunrise #awesome_earthpix #awesomeglobe #visualsofbritain #nature_wizards #nature_perfection #country_features #fiftyshades_of_nature #renegade_rural #britains_talent #everything_imaginable #rural_love #osmaps #landscapephotomag #landscapes_of_britain #excellent_britain #beautifullandscape #sunriseoftheday #uk_greatshots #bestukpics #theplacetobe #thegreatoutdoors #tree_shotz

Officials in Spain have confirmed the country will drop a two-week quarantine requirement for arrivals from July 1st.⁣ ⁣ We have a family villa booked in August and flying with RyanAir...⁣ ⁣ I wonder what the restrictions/rules for social distancing will be on the airline?⁣ ⁣ Do you guys have any plans to visit Spain or other European destinations this summer?

I originally set out to try and capture the milky way, however the weather had other plans. So I met up with @gsimpsonphoto after we both realised our separate plans to capture the milky way had failed. We caught up around winnats pass and decided to wait for sunrise. The weather got worse as the night went on to the point that we was starting to believe even sunrise would be a bust. We waited around till it got light and made our way up winnats Pass. The weather was changing by the minute clear, light mist, thick fog and repeat. But as the sun came up and burned off the upper most of the mist the rolling fog soon became a great treat. Not quite the inversion we was hoping fo, but non the less a great night and morning had. Go check out @gsimpsonphoto for his images of this evening and also the link in his bio for a video of the nights events and to get a true feel of the weather. @sonyalpha a7iii & @samyanguk 18mm f2.8 #peakdistrictwalks #winnatspass #longexposure_shots #peakdistrict #golden #walking #landscape #landscapelovers #sunrise #derbyshire #bealpha #beautifuldestinations #wexphoto #hikingadventures #abstract #sonyalphaclub #uk_shooters #ukpotd #scenicbritain #weloveengland #yourbritain #genuinebritain #glouriousbritain #visitderbyshire #bestukpics #instabritain #britains_talent #unlimitedbritain #hiking #ig_mirrorless

Came across this handsome guy this evening, my first proper image of a wild deer! =D Went for an evening walk with the camera in a new part of Bagley Woods and got to spend 2-3 minutes with him before he was scared off by a woman walking her two great danes. I'm surprised he stayed this still during the exposure, the shots after this were shot with a faster shutter=) • • • • Canon EOS R, Canon EF 70-200mm MKIII @200mm, ISO 100, 0,3sec, f/9 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #capturingbritain #country_features #explore_countryside #explore_britain #britains_talent #bestukpics #bestunitedkingdom #ukpotd #ukshots #ukshooters #ukscenery #uk_greatshots #gloriousbritain #1ukshot #photosofengland #photosofbritain #instabritain #yourbritain #thepipas2019 #bagleywoods #igersoxford #oxfordshire #deer #ukwildlife #oxfordshirecountryside #staylocal

So sad about the wildfire at Thursley Common, an amazing and beautiful national nature reserve. One of our favourite places and a haven for birds, wildlife and nature.

Depuis 2018, la fin du mois de mai prend une place très spéciale parmi mes plus beaux souvenirs de voyage! Elle représente mon tout premier voyage au Royaume-Uni! Depuis ce voyage, non seulement les murs de ma maison se sont garnis de photographies à la thématique british, mais j’ai toujours la tête pleine de ces images, comme celles-là! Elles me rappellent qu’un jour, je pourrai retourner dans la plus belle ville du monde!❤️🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿 Since 2018, the end of May has taken a very special place among my best travel memories! It represents my very first trip to the UK! Since this trip, not only have the walls of my house been filled with British themed photographs, but I always have my head full of these images, like these! They remind me that one day I can go back to the most beautiful city in the world! ❤️🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿 photosoflondon #londonview #thelondonlifeinc #londonlovers #gloriousbritain #bestukpics #ukshots #europe #beautifuldestinations #england #photosofbritain #britain #ilovebritain #unitedkingdom #uk_lovers #travelling_uk #bestofeurope #londonlife #londonlifestyle #london #thisislondon #toplondonphoto #ukscenery #explorelondon #unlimitedlondon #europe #stpaulscathedral #nomademag

Rising Above. Sea Thrift at Sunset, Milford on Sea, Hampshire. TAKEN - 8.55p.m. Thu 28th May '20 FACT - Armeria maritima, the thrift, sea thrift or sea pink, is a species of flowering plant in the family Plumbaginaceae.

A L I T T L E U P D A T E . . Three weeks ago I realised I was in a downward spiral with my health. If anyone knows me, knows I’ve experienced serious problems with my stomach/chronic pain amongst other TMI symptoms etc over the past several years and it’s only got much worse very recently, I won’t go into it right now, maybe I’ll explain another day... But one of the many effects was that I’m hardly eating because less food means less pain although it does effect me even if I haven’t ate and if I was eating it wasn’t great food, just being real. I wasn’t training. I wasn’t getting my steps in, I got told I shouldn’t be outside because of the exact medical problem so I almost made it an excuse. Everything was just on hold because of my pain. My mind was not it’s normal self. Weirdly enough I lost myself and how I looked. . . Fast forward to now, although I’m still awaiting a follow up appointment with my consultant. I’ve started to stop dwelling on how much pain I’m in and I’m powering through it. I’m allowed outside again for walks, making sure I do what I love, going for hikes and taking photo’s of beautiful scenery, I’m hitting 15-20k steps a day (sometimes more,) I’m drinking 2-3litres of water daily, I’m back to training push, pull, legs as well as gone back to tracking everything I eat. To add I do intermittent fast, it works for me, my stomach, I only eat when I’m hungry which I’m never hungry until later in the afternoon. It works. I can go on 10 mile walks fasted & actually feel better for not eating, sounds weird but it just works for me and my stomach condition. It might not work for you but we are all different. . . I’m seeing a change in my body & my mind, I have all my motivation and determination back thankfully. I am however looking forward to my appointment with my consultant but for now I’m happy to wait with everything else going on in the world. Once upon a time this account use to be a ‘fitness/accountable’ account, nowadays it’s a mixture of everything. I hope you’re all keeping safe and not losing motivation to do the things you love..🧡
