Most of my photography usually involves going out exploring the world around me to find that certain “something” that captures my interest. These photos were taken a little closer to home, in our own garden in fact.
Over the past three years I’ve been growing our own little lavender patch. This year our lavender looks to have really bedded in and has produced some lovely blooms. I have tried to grow lavender (French Lavender) in the past with no success. Making the choice to plant English Lavender to add to our little expanding garden has really paid off, and of course it has given me another homegrown flower to photograph.
The small intricate flowers that make up the flower heads of the English Lavender can be a challenge to photograph. I wanted to try and achieve a soft focus to match the softness of the lavender but still capture the detail flowers. I think I have achieved this in most of the shots taken.
