<p>Taken on my last photography trip before lockdown... I could not resist a few shots of the lambs in the field... cuteness overload I know.<br />
<br />
Hope you are all keeping well and staying safe.</p>			<p><a href="https://www.flickr.com/people/raretracktransport/">Raretrack transport photos</a> posted a photo:</p>

This little fellow became quite a companion on a recent trip to the Scottish Borders. The venture was extremely unproductive in terms of landscape photography, but I managed to scout a few areas for future reference.<br />
<br />
However, the lodge where I was staying had a huge woodland as a back garden with a variety of wildlife including deer, pheasants and woodpeckers. Every morning, I noticed this Nuthatch was a very regular visitor to a peanut feeder hanging in a nearby tree. I spent a couple of mornings observing his route across the garden, and set up a couple of perches in the vicinity.<br />
<br />
By the end of the week, he became quite a poser and was a very obliging subject. This was my favourite picture of the week, with him perched perfectly on a pine cone.</p>			<p><a href="https://www.flickr.com/people/wwshack/">wwshack</a> posted a photo:</p>

<p>This is my first venture into HDR Photography and have a lot to learn about editing such images.<br />

<p>In the days when Blindwell's coal was taken to the Aire Valley power stations in Yorkshire. 56060 &quot;Selby Coalfield&quot; and 56120 approach Grantshouse loops on a sunny, February afternoon. A single Class 56 loco was not allowed on 36 loaded MGR wagons owing to the gross weight when climbing Cockburnspath bank. Hence they were double headed to Grantshouse loops where the assisting loco came off and returned light engine to Millerhill yard. A Class 60 could handle such a train on its own.<br />
<br />
The train is pictured on the deviation that was built following the Penmanshiel tunnel collapse in 1979. The white railings, where the original A1 road crossed the old line, can be seen on the RH edge of the picture.</p>			<p><a href="https://www.flickr.com/people/arekev/">AreKev</a> posted a photo:</p>

<p>This was the second location id planned to shoot at St Abbs on Sunday Morning. When I got there the tide was too low for a shot to work so I had to wait... I went off and had a coffee and shot some spring lambs... who really didn't play the game LOL but it was an entertaining enough half hour. <br />
<br />
Eventually the tide was in enough... but the sun was harsh! I felt id prob end up doing a BnW conversion on this and that was what was in my head... but when processing it I actually liked the colour version. I controlled the exposure using a 3stop ND Soft Grad and polariser. I also wish I'd shot this a bit wider too.<br />
<br />
By 11am it was starting to get busier with walkers... as I was social distancing that was my indicator enough was enough and time to go home. With us now in effective lockdown I think for my own safety and the good of everyone I probably will just leave the camera in the house for a while and not go any specific photographic trips like this... I know you can social distance but for me I'd just rather not have any sagas at this time, car breakdown, slip and break an ankle etc etc. I'll maybe take the wildlife one on my wee walk over the fields at the back of the house but to be honest not much chance of getting a great pic over there really. Im looking forward to the challenge of shooting in the house!</p>			<p><a href="https://www.flickr.com/people/scottierae/">Scotty Rae</a> posted a photo:</p>
