A Bouquet for July

This blog post could have the sub-title “One day in July” because all the featured pics were taken on the same day and in fact within an hour of each other. It was a photographer’s dream. The early morning mist burnt off and the light was suddenly magical. I rapidly grabbed the trusty Nikon and shot away, stopping only to change lens from standard 18-55 zoom to 70-300 zoom. I downloaded them into Photoshop and couldn’t wait to see if the results were as good as I hoped they were.

I was so pleased with this batch of pics, that I hardly binned any and didn’t visit the editing suite at all. I hope you agree that the light was indeed magical.

A retired primary school head teacher, I now spend much of my time gardening in our quarter acre plot in rural Shropshire south of Shrewsbury. I share my garden with Jude my wife a newly retired teacher , eight assorted chickens and a plethora of wildlife. Jude does all the heavy work as I have a damaged spine and right leg. We also garden on an allotment nearby. We are interested in all things related to gardens, green issues and wildlife.
