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.
I really liked these snowdrop shots from one morning last week.
The sun was shining, the blossom was out and the snowdrops were beautiful this morning. Spring is definitely on the way.
The snowdrops were so pretty in the early morning sunshine.
I’ts been a strange start to the year and I don’t really know where January went. Most of it seems to have just disappeared.
I’ve been getting out with my camera again over the last few days and capturing the snowdrops which signal the coming spring.
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.
