After playing with the new Lensbaby Soft Focus II optic I was keen to play with the original optic and the macro element from the wide angle teleconverter. It wasn’t as warm and sunny this morning so the flowers weren’t as open as they were yesterday. I had to look much harder to find them.
The soft focus was wide open (so f/2). I was surprised how easy it was to focus when I added the macro element. I am pleased with the results.
It’s amazing the effect of a few warm sunny days. The bluebells are starting to come out and the violets were amazing.
The warm sunshine over the last few days has brought out the blossom.
Today I took my Lensbaby Obscura optic and the macro section from my wide angle converter for a play. It was a beautiful sunny morning on Malvern Common.
It was a bit grey this morning and threatening to rain when I took the dog out. I had more time this morning so I had a play with my camera capturing the spring flowers which were out. The snowdrops are passed their best, the primroses and daffodils are radiant and I was amazed to see the violets out.
It was a misty morning on the Common and there wasn’t much to see, until I looked down …
The water droplets on the grass and on the trees were like sparkling jewels.
I was in Tarbert, in Argyllshire, at the weekend so my morning walk was different from the usual. I took the dog along the Pier Road up to the village for the paper and decided to wander back over by the castle.
Having got up to the castle grounds I decided to wander further round the footpath which marks the start of the Kintyre Trail. That was the point at which a beautiful morning suddenly changed, with the onset of a freezing cold hail storm.
Just when I was thinking I’d made a really bad decision the light changed. It was amazing and was desperately wishing for my camera when I realised I had my phone with me.
I got some shots on the path before taking a detour up to “Gwen’s Bench” to capture the great views East Loch Tarbert and of the sun rising over Loch Fyne.
I had a great walk this morning. It wasn’t as cold as I expected and I was surprised to see the mist lying low on some parts of the Old Hills.
It was great to be out with my camera and favourite Lensbaby lenses, the velvet series. I wasn’t under any time pressure so could just play.
We took the dogs over to Malvern Common for their walk – just for a change.
It was a beautiful sunny autumn morning .
Welcome to the Lensbaby Blog Circle.
It was one of those mornings where you just don’t want to go out. I’d lain listening to the rain on the windows for what felt like hours and it was still coming down. Each time I thought about going out with the dog it seemed to get heavier. Eventually I decided it was time to go, it wouldn’t be so bad when I got out there. I collected my camera an other stuff and off we went. I knew it was madness taking my camera but I had to get a shot for my 365 project and I had two ideas and I wasn’t going back out later, not in this.
By the time I got to the end of the lane the rain has eased off and as we wandered onto the Old Hills I could see hints of a blue sky in the distance. We kept going and it started to brighten up and the sun came out. Now I was glad I brought my camera, the drenched landscape was stunning in the autumn sunshine. The raindrops on the trees were glistening like Christmas lights. I’m still playing with the Lensbaby Plastic Optic which added its own magic to the shots.
