The village pond in Osmaston.

It's very posh here, a polo pitch as well as a cricket ground.

Osmaston Park

Views towards one of the lakes in Osmaston Park.

I would soon be walking on the other side of the wood running along the valley floor.

It would have been nice to sit beside this lake but there were young cows in the field.

As I headed along Park Lane the fields next to me were full of poppies.

Heading into the second cricket ground of the day I was able to get some close-ups of the poppies.

Looking across another unnamed lake towards Home Farm.

Resting my camera on the fence post I attempted this long exposure of the waterfall.

A delightful cottage on the edge of Osmaston Park.
