Giving it welly (preferably green)

Doug (Burnham-on-Sea, United Kingdom) on 27 January 2015 in Lifestyle & Culture and Portfolio.

Part of the uniform for country activities in the British countryside the green wellington boot, although other colours are gradually making an appearance! Spotted at a point to point race we went to recently, Happy ST

Canon EOS 60D 1/200 second F/7.1 ISO 800 183 mm


Making an effort to return to AM3 after a bit of an absence, it's really nice to see photo's from all contributors and I will try to comment when I can. If I offer criticism I do so only to help and I do not wish to cause offence. My photography tends to be from my travels, as well as my passion which is wildlife and landscape. I hope you enjoy what you see.
Thanks for your comments I'm really grateful for them and welcome constructive feedback.

They seem to come to life in their own way, as if the boots are conversing and not the people.
