THIS IS THE CHAT THREAD

This week's challenge is IN THE PARK

Now that spring appears to have finally sprung in the northern hemisphere it would seem a good time to get the camera out and photograph your local park or gardens. If you don't have a park or public garden within easy reach please use your own patch or even window box to give us a photograph evoking the outdoors and May.

No restrictions whatsoever on PP work.

As we've got wall to wall sunshine in the next few days this, shouldn't be a problem.  8)

We have a beach which is not really a park but is the major public space in town.  I took a couple of interesting pictures in the fog the other day.  Would this meet the brief?

Just by chance we visited a sculpture park this week and in a very natural response my daughter struck a pose on the imposing structure   :tup:

The weather had been quite nice most of the week, but yesterday and today it's been a tad damp. Used my TG-4 to get this shot in the pouring rain. Managed to edit it in DXO without instigating a crash - so pleased!
