I've a ton of pictures to sort through, and a few things to sort out here, but I will get round to everyone eventually.


  1. Looks like you and Jim had some great scenery to explore.
    Great shots, especially love the one of the Kestrel.

  2. Fabulous, that is one great place you visited again Keith. Lovely shots and looking forward to the rest

  3. Welcome back Keith, it looks like you might have had some decent weather?

    Great set of images, a taster for more to come?

    Excellent images of the 'three musketeers', each one showing their different personalities off a treat!...[;o)

  4. Welcome back, Keith :-) I had a feeling it might be Wales you had escaped to. It is such a lovely place, I would love to live there.

    I can see Jim and his friends enjoyed it as much as you did.

    Lovely photos as always, the Kestrel is a beautiful bird!

  5. Your Wales visits must be inspiring. You bring back some great shots. The birds are always nice, I loved to see the dogs.
