“A Rose By Any Other Name….”

Seems appropriate to quote a bit of Shakespeare, after all these two Rose shots were taken at the Elizabethan Manor of Harvington Hall:

Rose, Shakespeare, Elizabethan, Harvington Hall, Kidderminster, Worcestershire, England

Rose, Shakespeare, Elizabethan, Harvington Hall, Kidderminster, Worcestershire, England

Two very different styles of shot, the second having had the contrast boosted and the colour de-saturated to enhance the texture and the moodiness in the sky.

Just wanted to apologise for my tardiness of late in following all your posts. We are in the process of buying a new house and we have been a bit pre-occupied with admin and organising things for the big move in a little over 3 weeks. Hopefully things will calm down a bit in a month or two and then normal service will be resumed…..:0).

Allium Stars

I’ve posted shots of the Alliums growing in our back garden before (and you can see them here and here) but in a more abstract style. Here is a more traditional macro shot of this beautiful plant:

Allium, Stars, Home, Wirral, Merseyside, England

I really like my new 60mm Macro lens…..:0). The above was hand-held (and yes I know that isn’t great Macro technique…..I was feeling lazy) and this is where the in-body 5-axis IS on the Olympus OMD EM1 really helps.
