It was one of those beautiful sunny winter days which was also freezing cold. A great day for capturing the spring flowers which are beginning to come out. Tyke can now go out , and all week I’ve been walking him round the block, past a fantastic array of snow drops and crocus, wishing I had time to go get my camera. Today I left Tyke at home and went out with my camera and Lensbaby Velvet 56.
Having had some fun there I went up the garden to the bunch of primroses which are growing in a shelter spot by the steps. My favourite shots from the day are below. I hope you enjoy them.

We all have things which define the seasons for us, the scent of elderflower and the sight of harebells make me think of summer
Saturday morning on the common was a full one. It was very muggy, felt like rain and there were no signs that it was going to develop into a beautiful suny day. Suddenly a patch of colour caught my eye and when I took a closer look it was a beautiful bunch of harebells. When I got my camera out, it had the Lensbaby Velvet 56 lens on. I fired off a few shots and ran to catch up with the others.
I took a few other shots as we wandered round but when I was reviewing them over a cup of tea my favourites were the harebell shots. I had a play in Lightroom to create the black and white version and can’t make up my mind which I like best, what do you think? I’d love to hear from you.

Harebells on the common
Sunday was a beautiful sunny summer morning. As we wandered round I spotted lots more harebells. It wasn’t until the last minute when we were n our way home I spotted the single harebell amongst the yellow. I couldn’t resist. This time I’d been playing with the Twist 60
and the macro converters
, enabling a closer focus. My favourite shot is below. I’m not sure what the yellow flowers are the looked dandelion like, but I loved the colour combination.

The Lensbaby lenses
create beautiful effects and produce great results when photographing wild flowers.
From a disappointing start on Saturday morning I got three great shots. Life is full of surprises.
