The last sunset of 2020.
The last sunset of 2020.
I bought myself some tulips just before Christmas and this morning they’d really opened up in the sunshine, providing some warm colours on a cold, frosty morning.
Some shots from a Sunday morning walk with the dogs. Splat playing, then resting on the way home and then at home after having had his breakfast.
Having found a tree in blossom last weekend, I took my camera with my velvet 56 lens out this morning to get some different shots.
They provide such a contrast to the grey surroundings.
It was a lovely, sunny morning on Saturday and I chose to put my velvet 56 on my camera to wander round the Old Hills with the dogs. There’s always something to photograph either on the Old Hills or wandering back down Bush Lane. I hope you like the shots below.
This week’s prompt for my Definitely Dreaming project 52 is “Little things”. I took my camera with my Lensbaby Velvet 56 on the Old Hills while walking the dogs, hoping to capture something suitable. I found lots.
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.

It was the shortest day of the year. The sun was coming out after what seemed like endless rain.
It feels like its been raining forever. The Old Hills at Callow End are sodden and the mud just sticks to the dogs so we’ve been going back to Malvern Common to walk them. Its still muddy, not as bad as the Old Hills, and there’s bracken, which when the dogs run through it, the mud drops off. It’s a simple but very effective trick for keeping them clean.
I had my Sweet 35 optics with me and my Velvet 56. It was lovely to see the sun shining through the cloud. The softness of the Velvet 56 accentuates the misty mood.
Wishing everyone all the best for 2020.

When I am the town running errands I like to look at the flowers in the supermarket and florists. Last week I found something I thought was a bit different, a Firework Chrysanthemum. It struck me as being very seasonal and I thought I could have fun with it.
The shots below were taken with the Lensbaby Velvet 56 or Sweet 35 (with macro converters).

This morning we walked along Bush Lane to the Old Hills. It’s a while since we’ve walked along there so it was great to sees the patches where wild flower seeds had been planted alive with colour. The red creeper snaking through the mistletoe was also an unusual sight and I was drawn to the colour combination. It made me think Christmas is coming.
