Continuing on from the previous blog entry about the Sheffield Botanical Gardens. I managed to get lots of shots of various flowers and plants. This isn’t normally my favourite subject to photograph, although there were so many different colours and shapes that captured my interest in the summer sun.
These red flowers I will be honest I have no idea what they are or what they are called. I loved the contrast of the deep red against the yellows and greens.
This yellow flower caught my eye, the pure intensity of the colours in the gardens were amazing. Would be a great location to go back to for a portrait shoot as well.
Just looking back at these photos taken back in July reminds me of the hot sunny weather and makes me feel all summery again. I’m sure the winter season will bring lots of photographic opportunities and inspiration my way, I do still prefer summer.
This one flower I did manage to find out the name of “Globe Thistle” intrigued me. I captured various shots of these flowers. There are some more to be posted in the third and final post to come in this series. Where I have captured them with some of the wildlife.
I have uploaded some of these shots to the online store so they can be purchased as prints. They should be published to purchased within the next 12 hours.

I had the opportunity last week to work with Lisa, a model that I met through Purestorm, which is a modelling website for models and photographers alike.
This was one of Lisa’s first modelling shoots, for being new to modelling she was a delight to work with. She was very relaxed, easy going and professional. Working with new models can always be daunting for both the model and the photographer as you don’t know how the other works. The shoot was very enjoyable and went like clockwork.
