I wasn't sure what to call this blog entry. I guess because there are two stories for the price on one here. Every morning I take my little dog for a walk and often it's just round the corner from where I live, a small town in Wiltshire. There are a few small fields with paths running through them, short cuts from one road to another. Over the months I watch as the wildflowers change through the seasons. A page on my website shows my walk in Spring.
Wildflowers are all the rage in gardens at the moment, lots of the designers at Chelsea and Hampton Court were using them, but I don't need to walk into my garden to see them they're out there all the time doing their thing.
When the sun came out to play, after sulking behind big black clouds for far too long everything seemed to burst into life. So early one morning (5.45am early) I took my dog and my camera and a 50mm lens, a lens hood and tried to capture the moment. Here's what I saw...
In each of these pictures I have shot into the light, using the lens hood to stop too much flare on the image and sometimes blocking it with a tree or foliage.
'Don't be afraid of the light, it makes a picture.'
