Wild Flowers of Summer

Last Hint of Summer

Although we may now be in early December there is still a hint of summer that lingers on. Some of the summer flowers in our garden have weathered the autumn months and lasting in to the start of winter. This gave me the perfect opportunity to test out my new zoom/macro lens to capture the last hint of summer.

Highland Coo’s

[Graves Park, Sheffield]
You can’t visit Grave’s Park without visiting their herd of Highland Cattle. I still love the fact that they keep highland cattle. In my opinion “real coos”, even in the wilds of Yorkshire there is a hint of my Scottish surroundings.

The heat yesterday seemed to be taking its toll on the cows, as they were mostly all laying down taking in the rays. Although we were not convinced that some of them may not have been heavily pregnant, which may be another reason why they appeared so tired in the sun.

Summer Blooms

Another botanical photography expedition, one of the many things that I love about living in Sheffield is that even in the heart of the city you are never far away from the beauty of nature. There is no shortage of green spaces in the city.

I seem to be drawn towards capturing natures floral masterpieces of late. Most photographers usually have a genre that they tend to stick to, be that portraits, wildlife, commercial, macro. I find it so hard to dedicate myself to just one field. That being said this summers blooms seem to be what are capturing my creativity at present.

Nature on the Doorstep

Living in the city sometimes I think we all forget about the nature that is right on our doorstep, myself included. You can find a glimpse of nature in any urban space.

Across the road from our own urban space we have our own little glimpse of nature. Reminding me that beauty can be found everywhere.
