Unfortunately this was the one occasion when I didn't have my 150-600mm lens with me! So this is a big crop. But it was wonderful to see this stag amongst the bluebells.

Fuji XT2 with XF 10-24mm

St Aidan's, Throckington Northumberland. The village consists of the church and a farm, all other houses were destroyed after an outbreak of cholera in the early 1800s.

The Church has an interesting history being the last resting place of Lord William Beveridge the author of the report that subsequently led to the introduction of the Welfare State. The cemetery also includes the the grave of Connie Leathart one of the first women to hold a commercial pilots licence. The churchyard was also the subject of a strange situation when the partner of Tom Sharpe - the author - buried Sharpe's ashes illegally and they were subsequently removed. Together with his ashes were a medium sized bottle of Famous Grouse whisky, and a fountain pen used to write his novels :D  You can read about it here - https://www.theguardian.com/books/2016/jan/29/tom-sharpes-partner-fined-for-unofficial-burial-of-his-ashes

After 3.5 years with my trusty old iPhone 6s, I picked up a new Huwuauaiaia (whatever it's called) P20 Pro yesterday. Didn't really want to commit to the extra £/month for the P30 so this will do. Not a bad camera at all (which is the reason I got it) although Android will need some adjusting to...old dog/new tricks etc. Still, took it to Belton this morning. Top 2 images are dng converted in LR6, bottom one of Emma is soop jpeg:
