I’m not a big fan of winter so it is nice to see the start of Spring and the hope that the colder weather is behind us for another year. Our garden is showing the first signs of Spring with our first blooms Crocuses. I have to admit I do not remember planting these but they look lovely all the same.
Recently I certainly haven’t had to venture far to capture nature, it is literally on my doorstep. This is the first time that I have been out with my camera this year. Looking forward to the warmer weather to come and getting out to explore more.

On a typical Sunday trip to the in-laws back in May. One of those days where we actually thought we might get some summer weather this year I had decided to take my camera with me and capture some photos along the way.
Haven’t had a lot of time lately to collate all the photos that I have taken recently from my various mini photo excursions. Thought it was about time that I should post these one up, only 2 months late.
Anyway the May sunshine highlighted the beauty of the surrounding plant life, encouraging me to capture some of it. Although Dandelions are weeds I still think that they look quite nice especially when they mature into the spherical seed heads that you can see in my shots above.
As I develop my photography I am finding that I quite enjoy botanical photography. As much as enjoying photography other subjects, there is a relaxation quality to this subject.
I do think there are probably very few subjects that I would get bored photographing if I’m honest. Some subjects seem to suit different moods.
