It was a beautiful fresh morning on Malvern Common. I was surprised to see the harebells still flowering and it seems to have been a bumper year for acorns.
While the sun was out this afternoon I had a play with my Lensbaby Velvet 28 and Velvet85 in the garden. The caterpillars have destroyed the leaves on the radish and I wanted to get some shots of the basil flowers.
The basil flowers were covered in bees and I’ve included the best shot of the day.
My favourite lens is my Lensbaby Velvet 56. I love the glow it creates, especially when wide open and as its a macro lens it lets me get really close to my subjects. I’ve been playing with the Lensbaby Velvet 85 over the last few weeks. The longer focal length means i don’t have to get so close to get images I love. I spent some time today crouching on the lawn trying to capture the little flowers hidden between the blades of grass.
This week’s prompt for my Definitely Dreaming project 52 is “Little things”. I took my camera with my Lensbaby Velvet 56 on the Old Hills while walking the dogs, hoping to capture something suitable. I found lots.
The blossom on the trees is fantastic at this time of year. There are two in my neighbours garden, one with pink blossom and the other white. With the overnight rain and wind much of it has fallen like confetti.
On Sunday morning I went on the Old Hills with the dogs and my camera. It was a beautiful, sunny, spring morning.
