After what seems like a very gloomy August, the sun has come out in September.
I was working in the office in Malvern today and escaped at lunchtime to Peachfield Common. I had my camera with my Lensbaby Twist 60 Optic. I wanted to get some shots of the Harebells. For some reason they don’t seem to grow on the Old Hills and as they a very much a symbol of summer for me, I missed seeing them.
Today it felt like summer.
The challenge is to take a photo every day through 2021 using my different Lensbaby lenses and optics. During May I used the Burnside 35. It produces great pictures with rich colours and in some cases a lovely swirly background.
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.
It was a surprise this morning to see how much snow had fallen overnight. The Common was beautiful this morning, basking in the spring sunshine with a covering of snow. It was melting so quickly and I’m sure we were out during the best part of the day.
I know its been cold this week buts that mainly been down to early morning frosts and cold northerly winds. It was a surprise this morning to see so much snow on the Malvern Hills and even on the common. It was amazing how much more snow there was as we headed up towards the top of the common.
These are my March Lensbaby 365 Project photos. They were all taken using a double glass optic.
It was a beautiful, bright sunny morning on the common. There was a cold bite to the wind but there were sings of spring everywhere.
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.
My January challenge was to take a photo every day using one of my Lensbaby Sweet optics. The shots are all below. Previously I have struggled with the Sweet 80 but during January, I seemed to use it the most.
I did cheat one day and use the Lensbaby Circular Fisheye lens.
It was amazing on the common this morning. To the east the mist was clinging to the landscape as the sun rose and the hills looking fantastic with a covering of frost and snow.
