Due in part to having started Project 365 (a photo a day for a year), I’ve been spending a bit of time pottering about with my macro lens recently. I like this time of year in the garden as you don’t have to do any hard work (serious gardeners may disagree) and you slowly start to see life in amongst all the bleak dead stems, brown earth and empty snail shells. I even rather like the bare stems of Clematis as you spot the little curls and details you don’t see when they are in leaf.
The next photos were taken on a very rare snowy day. We live in a rather mild microclimate in the south east and as we are by the sea snow hardly ever settles, but for a few happy hours we got to enjoy a sprinkling of the white stuff and of course, I had to go out with my camera.
The last shot wasn’t taken with a macro lens, but it was on the snowy day. I love teasels and this group looked great with their dusting of snow. You can even see a few flakes falling.
