    Mid May on Baildon Moor and in our garden

    I have been neglecting my photography outings but with the nice weather I decided to go for a wonder on Baildon Moor on Saturday. Being retired I sometimes think I should leave Baildon Moor at the weekend to those that work and limit my visits to during the week. I’ll save it until near to […]
