Snowdrops at Stanbrook Abbey

 

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.

 

 

 

In the Lawn

 

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.
