Don’t you just love this time of year? It’s full of energy, growth and optimism. The days are longer, brighter and hopefully warmer.
My April Lensbaby Blog Post includes some of the photographs I took when I recently wandered round just 2 of the many wonderful gardens we are fortunate to have in Yorkshire, Harlow Carr and Beningborough Hall.
As it’s so early in the season, the images show the transition from the desaturated tones of winter to the emerging vivid colours of the season ahead. There is something very beautiful about the bare skeletal shrubs and trees that winter leaves behind for spring to perform it’s magic.
I am really enjoying taking photographs and writing for the Lensbaby Blog Circle. It is encouraging me to let my photography tell stories. I am slowly mastering the manual focus of the Velvet 85 and equally enjoy taking close ups but also love the not so ‘pin’ sharp effect I am used to with my landscapes.
It’s in my diary to return later in the season to see how the gardens have flourished.
