The sun wasn’t out this morning when Splat and I headed out on the Old Hills. It was a bit overcast but warm enough for the wild flowers to have opened. So often we take for granted the flowers we pass daily.
I am enjoying playing with the zone plate optic and seem to be getting better results than previously.
I can’t believe we are at the end of April, that means I’m one third of the way through my Lensbaby 365 project. For the April challenge I used the Creative Bokeh Optic and the Muse.
The shots are collected together below.
These are my March Lensbaby 365 Project photos. They were all taken using a double glass optic.
I had a lovely walk round the grounds of Stanbrook Abbey today. The magnolia tree is starting to come out and was looking amazing.
It wasn’t a great day weather-wise, but I thought I’d take the camera and have a wander round the grounds of Stanbrook Abbey.
It’s been over a week since I’d wandered round and I was interested to see what had changed. Most of the snowdrops and crocus have gone, there are still lots of primroses and the daffodils are fantastic.
I found a couple of magnolia tress which are in bud and will be amazing in a week or so.
My photography challenge for February was to take a photo every day using the Fisheye optic or Circular Fisheye lens. I was amazed at how close I could get to my subject so they are great for macro photography and the fisheye effect adds another dimension when used to full effect All twenty eight photos are below.
I’ve watched the snowdrops, Crocus and daffodils all starting to bloom and announce that “Spring is Coming”.
Today when I was out for a wander with my camera I spotted other signs of spring.
I set off round the Abbey trail at Stanbrook Abbey this afternoon. I had my camera with me with my Lensbaby fisheye lens. Its a lovely walk round the grounds of the former nunnery, which is now a hotel.
There are lots of snowdrops and the other spring flowers are starting to come out, including primroses, crocus and daffodils. I was so busy playing I didn’t notice the cold.
While out on my walk, I went to see how the little bunch of snowdrops were doing. The last time I checked, they were beginning to come out. Today, despite being under the trees they were covered in snow.
I bought myself some tulips just before Christmas and this morning they’d really opened up in the sunshine, providing some warm colours on a cold, frosty morning.
