Several of my photographs have been printed into fine art cards, which I wanted to share with you.
Except one, all are taken in and around Suffolk.
It started with the idea of having something smaller to sell and hand out when doing fairs and exhibitions, therefore somewhat of an experiment. Also an opportunity to display another side of my photography work.
A few weeks ago I ran a small survey on social media, asking which they thought from a choice of five (at the time) would make the best wall hanging piece. The results were quite the opposite to my thoughts and was invaluable help for which one was finally chosen.
The piece was duly made (which I photographed) and donated as a raffle prize at a Ladies Evening run by the Heritage Well Being Centre at Nowton Court, just outside Bury St Edmunds. A goodly sum of money was raised for the St Nicholas Hospice 🙂
Before I share (another blog I feel) which one came out tops, I would much appreciate your comments and thoughts on the images. Which ones are your favourites and (if you know) why?

Anyone recognise where a few of these were taken….?
While on holiday, I got up early to try and catch the Heron fishing on the river. I’d already chosen my spot to sit hidden on the bank… and I waited… and I waited… but no luck that morning. The only shot I did get was as he flew overhead, so at least I did see him… fleetingly!
In fairness, I don’t really have a long enough lens at the moment for wildlife shots, but I still can’t resist trying! So I turned my attention to the river and really like the two shots, that follow. The first was playing with a very shallow depth of field. The next one, I had turned my attention to reflections in the water and just loved how the photo turned out. A real ‘water painting’ type image of a tree reflection – happy days!
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.
