My photography challenge for this year is to take a photo every day using my Lensbaby lenses and optics. During June I only used the Pin Hole/Zone plate optic. This is one of the older optics which has two settings the Zone plate with an aperture made up of concentric circles which is approximately f/19 and the Pin Hole with an aperture f/177. Both settings require lots of light and the zone plate works best in high contrast situations.
This day was particularly dull and it felt like it was going to be a real challenge to get my photo for the day. I had a play taking shots of the flowers growing along the fence and in the bushes. The results surprised me and it reminded me that you never know how things will turn out and its always worth taking the shots …

Splat and I headed out this morning for our usual morning walk but it was so beautiful I decided to take advantage of it being a Saturday and not having to be back for a meeting. As we wandered around the Old Hills we found ourselves wandering along the footpath to Madresfield.
It was a great opportunity to get some different shots with the Zone Plate optic which was on my camera.
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.
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.
We explored some different paths along our usual route round the Old Hills this morning. The countryside is beautiful and we so often fail to appreciate what’s on our doorstep.
Jack and I went for a wander round Malvern Common last weekend.
It was a lovely cold, bright, sunny morning. With all the recent rain the common was wet and muddy but we found the first snowdrops of the year.

It was a cold misty morning today. There has been so much rain this month everywhere is wet and muddy. Despite this I did take my camera with me and had a play with the Sweet 35 and Sweet 80 optics.
I used the Sweet 35 for the close up shots.
