Today is my birthday and as a tradition of birthdays in our house you get to choose what you want to do.
After recent snowfall my choice was easy – a stroll around the lake at National Trust Calke Abbey followed by Hot Chocolate & bite to eat in the restaurant. Calke is a place I hold dear to my heart and love visiting with my family, alone or as a volunteer photographer.
The gorgeous blue sky combined with snowy white ground was incredibly photogenic so shot lots of photos and made good use of my present, a polarising filter

I hope you enjoyed the trip around the park
