Dreams of Open Spaces (v2)

    Newer Older

    Taken in my back garden in England, as I ate my dinner al fresco.

    After we moved into our home about 6 years ago we totally ignored the inside, and spent three years landscaping our garden instead. It is nicely matured now, and an absolute joy to sit outside on a pleasant evening in the result of our efforts.

    I had been trying to take a macro of one of the grass flowers, but as it was waving around so much I gave up. Instead I poked my camera into the centre of the grass (Stipa Gigantica I think...) and took several shots 'freehand' instead.

    I added the black border as a way of containing the grass stems that were straying out of the picture. The other frame just didn't do anything for me...

      Both of them are great photos but I agree with you about the border.

      Seen in your Nature set. (?)

      sometimes the "freehand" approach just works better - the beauty of digital and the ability to blast away. The light in this one is fantastic.
