When I’m not taking photos of small things like flowers and insects, I take photos of rather larger things… namely horses! My daughter loves to ride and I often find myself sitting in field in the rain taking photos at competitions. In this event I sat near this huge log jump and was happy toContinue reading “Big Jumps”
Reminding myself that beauty is everywhere. You don’t have to go far to find some. These lovely droplets were on the chives growing in the garden.
Last weekend I bought myself an Anemone plant. It was already flowering with lots of buds so I was excited to get it into the ground. Since then it has rained a lot and when I went out to take photos of them yesterday, they were looking a bit battered. The ground beneath was strewnContinue reading “Imperfect Perfection”

When the sun came out for a while afterContinue reading “Stalking Raindrops”
