Lunchtime Wander Round Stanbrook Abbey

 

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.

 

 

Fisheye February

 

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.

 

 

Snowdrops at Stanbrook Abbey

 

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.

 

 

 

Snowdrops – Lensbaby Blog Circle

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.
