118/365 Gate & Saw Mill, Osmaston

The Saw Mill seems to be the usual 'star of the show', but the gate is beautiful too. I had a fabulous afternoon with fellow photographers and a group of walkers on a guided walk at Osmaston which included part of the Okeover Estate. The weather did not look promising, and we did have light rain but conditions improved for the latter part of the walk, so we didn't get too wet. I'll be posting an album on Picasa in due course, but have edited this shot for today's daily pic. For more info about the village and the estate click here.

Many thanks to TB at my photography club for organising it - the afternoon was so enjoyable I'm going to do it again on Sunday, but that will be at Lumsdale, near Matlock. Can't wait :0)

  1. VERY NICE, Nicky. Love the focus and subject matter. My eye wanders everywhere. Wonderful capture.

  2. Thanks Karen, I am pleased with it, tricky choice, it was a good afternoon despite the weather.

  3. Hi Nicky
    Pleased you enjoyed the afternoon. Pity about the rain; some things I just can't arrange! I do like your image - your own unique view of the saw mill, which I think really works.

    For others admiring your photo, I would like to say this photo walk and the one on Sunday has been organised as part of the Peak District Walking Festival, and thanks are due to Jane for making these events possible.

    See you Sunday.

    Best wishes, Tony
