The long and winding road,...

... down to the stream

Here's a few for C&C from another gentle local walk last weekend near St. Georgen, Austria.

using the Z7 and the z85 /F1.8 and the Z14-30 /F4

This lady was changing the flowers in a small roadside chapel

you know you're  getting closer to the river when all around the wild orchids are flowering

Thanks for looking

My pleasure.
Happy to see a stream pic taken with a high shutter speed - you froze the water movement. So thumbs up for not following the mainstream
IMHO the slow shutter speed is justified for the last one. Looks like an expressive abstract painting.

Nice ones, I like the image of the lady the best.  She has travelled the long and winding road ...

I think you're right, it was nice chatting with her as we walked by.

These little chapels are always well looked after here in Austria. Nearly always fresh flowers or a burning candle inside.

Thanks, I was definitely thinking "abstract" as I processed the last

A very nice set, thank you for sharing!

I think the last picture is my favourite.

FYI the magenta flower isn't an orchid, it's Himalayan Balsam (Impatiens glandulifera) 🙂
