At the end of September I started a Masters course in Biological Photography and Imaging.
“I found a new hide yesterday. Great little find nearby, with so many species frequenting the feeders…”
I took the new (second-hand) lens out into the garden to try to capture a closer shot of the moon…
“So I started editing a bit to give my macro plant images a bit more character and unique quality. I liked the idea of toning everything down into moody blues and greys.”
“I never liked dahlias when I was studying horticulture at Royal Horticultural Society levels and learning all the plant names. I found them blousy and showy and over-the-top – not subtle in any way, unlike my favoured hardy geraniums.”
Macro photography is utterly addictive to me.
These shots were taken on the fly after a brief walk through the gardens to reach the café. I will be going back to take more.
Here are a few captures from Harlow Carr in Harrogate, Yorkshire, UK from the weekend.
