Photo: Through the Archway

After what seems like forever, I think I’m finally beginning to shake this chest infection (luckily I didn’t have whooping cough), so ventured outside last night for the first time in weeks. We just went to the nearby woods for a wander and as  I’ve been really lax with learning my camera lately, I took it, and one lens, along with me ... Read More »
