Easter Sunday Evening ......

We went for a walk in the beautiful evening sunshine Easter Sunday, and as we left I took this picture of one of my neighbour's barns .....
I've played with this in Photoshop using Kim Klassen's texture Serendipity and another texture History - doesn't the rust colour 'pop'?
As we carried on down the lane I noticed this plant was covering the banking for many yards - I don't know what it is, but it is so pretty....
 Down to Hollocombe Water and this is one side of the bridge ..
and this is the other side.  The water is very low at the moment.  It is usully rushing along at quite a pace, but Sunday it was almost still.
Bit further along, and some bluebells embracing the water's edge.
Up into the wooded area, away from the water ....... the evening light was amazing.
 I have played with this photo too, adding two layers of the texture Serendipity.  Makes it look a really magical place .....
by the path was a mass of these flowers, some pure white and some with a dash of pink, like these.  I think they are wood anemones, but not sure.
Along a bluebell path ......
 Couldn't resist it - had to add just one layer of Serendipity to this ...
and finally home.  I took another view of the farm Barns next door to where I live, as I came down the lane.
Lovely end to a lovely day - hope your day was good too.
Till next time .......

That was such a lovely walk Val - I feel as if I came with you. I have never seen those pink flowers - very unusual but lovely. The white ones are wood anemones. Your photos are beautiful and I love the enhanced ones.

What a gorgeous walk. well done with all the textures. My favourite is the one going into the wood, truly magical. I've never seen the pink flowers before either.

What a fun walk you had! I really love the barn pictures - one of the things on my VERY extensive 'want-to-do' list is to create some old barns in textiles...hopefully someday.

So beautiful - it looks like an enchanted place and perhaps there are some fairies hiding there?
