The sun wasn’t out this morning when Splat and I headed out on the Old Hills. It was a bit overcast but warm enough for the wild flowers to have opened. So often we take for granted the flowers we pass daily.
I am enjoying playing with the zone plate optic and seem to be getting better results than previously.
The best part of the day is definitely first thing in the morning before everyone else is up and about. This morning was especially beautiful, it wasn’t too warm and the sun was up. The Old Hills were lovely and the flowers were at their best.
I only met one other dog walker as I wandered around with my mad springer spaniel.
Seeing and smelling the elderflower always feels like summer!
I love the dreamy look created by the Lensbaby Zone Plate optic, definitely adds to the feel of summer.
One of the challenges this week was to take a photo around midday when the sun and contrast are strongest. My challenge for June is to take a photo each day using the Lensbaby Pin Hole/Zone Plate optic.
It’s one of the older optics and when there is good contrast the zone plate optic produces a lovely glow. I had a play taking shots of the flowers in the lawn, before it was cut.
The buttercups are beautiful just mow and in places the common looks yellow. The orchids are easy to miss, surrounded by buttercups and yellow rattle.
