Every so often I organise a ‘photo-ramble’ in support of local charities. Last weekend’s ramble was around Styal : a chocolate box village on the edge of Greater Manchester built originally to house the workers of nearby Quarry Bank Mill (now a popular National Trust property).
As this was a ramble rather than a garden photography workshop we were travelling light (no tripods) and the subjects were many and varied. Nonetheless, we came across plenty of flower photography opportunities as we wandered around the village. Here are a few of my images from the walk….
In spite of the showery weather my photo-ramblers had a very enjoyable walk, found some fabulous images, raised money for Beechwood Cancer Care, got plenty of fresh air and enjoyed coffee and cakes at Quarry Bank Mill. A great morning!
