It wasn’t a great day weather-wise, but I thought I’d take the camera and have a wander round the grounds of Stanbrook Abbey.
It’s been over a week since I’d wandered round and I was interested to see what had changed. Most of the snowdrops and crocus have gone, there are still lots of primroses and the daffodils are fantastic.
I found a couple of magnolia tress which are in bud and will be amazing in a week or so.
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.
I’ve watched the snowdrops, Crocus and daffodils all starting to bloom and announce that “Spring is Coming”.
Today when I was out for a wander with my camera I spotted other signs of spring.
I set off round the Abbey trail at Stanbrook Abbey this afternoon. I had my camera with me with my Lensbaby fisheye lens. Its a lovely walk round the grounds of the former nunnery, which is now a hotel.
There are lots of snowdrops and the other spring flowers are starting to come out, including primroses, crocus and daffodils. I was so busy playing I didn’t notice the cold.
While out on my walk, I went to see how the little bunch of snowdrops were doing. The last time I checked, they were beginning to come out. Today, despite being under the trees they were covered in snow.
I went for a wander on the Old Hills with my camera this afternoon. Most of yesterday’s snow was melting, the Hills were sodden and I got caught in a few showers but it was worth it. I found the first snowdrops, although they were barely coming out.
It was a beautiful sunny day between the showers so I went for a wander with my camera. I didn’t go far and the signs of spring were everywhere.
The sun came out this afternoon, after the worst of storm Denis had passed. The snowdrops have been battered by wind and rain over the last few days but still looked bright.
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.

While January seemed to last forever, February seems to have come to an end ever so quickly and it ‘s Lensbaby blog circle time again.
Snowdrops are the first sign that spring is on its way and they are so pretty dancing in the sunshine, sometimes covered in dew. During the last few weeks I’ve found little bunches tucked away behind hedges, under trees and some out in the open. I thought it was worth bringing together the best shots to share. I hope you enjoy them.
