Walks Taking Photos with my Phone Camera
I have ventured out a few times during lock-down and I’ve taken advantage of the peace and quiet – lack of people around – to take photos.
I hope you enjoy my efforts. I’ve taken the photos with my Samsung phone.
I love swans and over the years have taken so many photos of them in various locations. This is a local lake.
This Heron was difficult to capture as he seemed to know I was trying to take his photo. A family is feeding the swans in the background. I counted over 15 pairs of swans at one time.
I love looking up into the trees to see how the leaves and blossom contrast with the sky colour, and how the sky peeps through the gaps in the leaves.
A lovely bridge across a tiny stream in The Savill Garden, part of Windsor Great Park (Crown Estate) which is a favourite place to walk and was recently opened to members only with social distancing rules applying.
Reflections upon water fascinate me. Anyone following me on Facebook will be familiar with my photos of reflections.
This is Horseshoe lake, one of several lakes made from the excavation of gravel from local farmland decades ago and now a haven for all sorts of birds and animals. I love walking here. I might pass the odd dog-walker or – before lock-down – students from Wellington College and Eagle House School, messing around on the water in their canoes and sailing boats during lessons on the water. I have walked around most of the lakes, which vary in size. I think there are ten in total, but I may be wrong. I’ve still lots of the area to explore.
Social distancing observed, this is Savill Garden again. a fab place to sit and enjoy the birdsong and the hum of bees.
At the far end of Virginia Water – part of the Crown Estate and Windsor Great Park. A great place to walk, no entry fees although you pay for parking. It can get busy during school holidays. However, you can escape to remote areas – acres and acres of placing to walk and lose yourself – and never see anyone, even though the car parks are full.

Back at Virginia Water again and this time with a photo of the boathouse. I took this to show the fab reflections of the trees and clouds.
Just love walking here, Virginia Water, Valley Gardens
Love this tree and all the blossom. Savill Gardens.
I hope you enjoyed my photos. I will be adding more soon. thanks for dropping in. Take care, keep safe. xx Jane.
