Yes I know it’s 3 weeks now since I last posted but I’ve been really busy and I’ve had to put a few things on one side including my blog whilst I got on with ‘other matters’…
So not a lot happening on the photography side for me at the moment and as I type this and look out of the window I don’t think much will be happening for a while to come as the weather is really not at it’s best. We put the clocks back here in the UK last week and ever since then we seem to have had either dull, wet or windy days none of which inspire me to go out there with a camera. Anyway I did take a few photo’s a couple of weeks ago so I’ll put them here for you to see..
The first one at the top of the page is a photo of a fungi that was growing at the bottom of my Beech Bonsai Tree. It was only 2cm in size and I had to use my Macro lens to even get a good look at it but I was quite pleased with the end result. This next photo is one I took looking across part of the gardens over at Hyde Hall, although it doesn’t show it as I had hoped but the clouds appeared to be hanging so low in the sky that they seemed to be touching the tree tops at times..
So I’ll end with a few more pics I’ve taken recently including the last of the fushia and the grass flowers. This weather is finishing them off very quickly. Next time I’ll hopefully come back with some more interesting ones for you, although they may well be of ‘winter’…now there’s a thought to leave you with.
Thanks for popping by and I’ll try and not leave it so long the next time…
for some reason this year I’ve got a ‘thing’ about Autumn. Maybe it’s because we’ve not had such a good summer and therefore I’m wanting to benefit from the Autumn sun and colours so bear with me on this one.
So let me tell you about the chappie on the left…yes he’s been made up with wood and doesn’t he remind you of the logo of Bertie Bassett on the packets of Bassett liquorice Allsorts sweets whether that was the intention or not I’ve no idea but I will see if I can find out more about him next time I visit the gardens.
Yes I’ve been off to Hyde Hall yet again but it really is a place I can visit time after time as the gardens are continually changing as time moves through the seasons. Anyway I went all on my own last week and spent about 5 hours wondering around with my camera and Macro lens. It was such a beautiful clear day with a blue sky, very warm sunshine and not too many people there as it was midweek.
So here are a some of the photo’s taken with the 100mm macro lens which I must admit to using for all types of shots and then I decided to use my new lens as I wanted to catch some colours beginning to appear on the trees but I hope the next time I go back they will be more advanced than this
Finally I’ll leave you with my own little bit of Autum in our garden. Many years ago I was fortunate to study Bonsai and this Beech tree I started 21years ago this November and as you will see it now a fully grown (bonsai) tree and yes it’s leaves are also changing and they will of course all drop and the tree will go into it’s winter mode!!
When I look at the photo’s I’ve posted they really do not do them justice in the small size so please do click on them to view them at a large image.
I hope you’re enjoying your season whether you are here in the Northern Hemisphere or where you’re beginning to welcome Spring in the Southern Hemisphere..
I’ll see you again soon, and take care.
