Tropical flowers

Flowers may not move around swiftly, except in the wind, and they do not take fright if you get too close (as far as we know!), but it does not mean they are always easy to photograph. Available light, shade and shadows and surrounding undergrowth can all play their part.

Autumn, England

Autumn leaves

Autumn is a great time of year in England. I don’t mind a bit of early morning fog (good job as t was foggy every morning on my recent trip), the odd wispy layer of mist, a slight ‘chill’, dampness in the air and, of course, love a bit of snow. Not keen on bitterly cold gale force winds and constant driving rain, but fortunately there was none of that nonsense this time. And I love the autumn colours.
