In contrast to the very damp (festive?) weather we currently have, thought I’d share some early morning shots (and a big splash of colour!) I took earlier in the year of poppies, at their best in my garden. Was playing with a very shallow depth of field and really like the little droplets of water in focus on the petals.
While walking through the Abbey Gardens in Bury in Autumn, this little squirrel hops towards me, stopped, posed… then threw a look that said ‘well hurry up, I haven’t got all day’… so I shot him… with my camera!
We sometimes get horses tethered out on the common – so early one frosty morning, I liked the light behind these two beautiful ponies and ended up with a bit of accidental lens flare, that for me added to the mood of the photo.
