I love the springtime and flower photography! The spring is a time when new life is created and the trees start to return to their former glory after the winter has passed. It’s also a great time to clean out all that old junk you’ve kept around and start bringing life to your garden again.
My partner and I have been working hard on our garden – more him than me. Planting new flowers. Cleaning up all the dead leaves and flowers left behind by the harsh winter. I know it won’t be for a while but, I’m looking forward to seeing the garden bloom again by the summer.
The garden is a great place of inspiration around this time of year. Unfortunately I haven’t been able to go out much due to health reasons so instead of going for walks, I was out with my camera and some fresh cut flowers as the garden is still very much green at the moment. It has been quite some time since I’ve had my camera out, I had almost forgotten how enjoyable it is.
I’m not entirely sure what the above flowers are but they are beautiful none the less. If anyone knows what they are please let me know in the comments section below.
We have so many lilies in the garden and most of them, if not all, are red. Have you guessed my favourite colour yet?
This is another plant I’m not sure of. Anyone know?
I love Dahlias’, they are so beautiful and come in so many different colours. We are growing some of our own in the garden which were meant to be an orange and white variety but, apparently the plant had other plans and is yellow. I don’t mind though, they are a beautiful addition to any garden.
This plant we bought a few days before this picture was taken. We make a point of buying a new addition to the garden each year to bring some life after all the winter weather.
Although I wasn’t able to take many photos, it was still good to get back into the practice of which lighting looks best and what to avoid. There is still lots to learn in photography, I do hope to be able to share hints and tips with you all in the future. For now though, I’ll keep practicing.
It’s great to get out with the camera. Even if it’s only in the garden.
Have a lovely day.
