DOUBLE EDIT: Thanks to everyone who has viewed, favourited and commented some more, this is now my most interesting photo

- -

me and meg went for a walk through this place called black leach park.

it was quite a quiet place.

a large lake surrounded by footpaths.

we took a lunch break and sat down to eat a packet of crisps. as we set off i spotted a lone dandelion by the side of the path and asked meg if she would pose for a photo for me.

i had my 50mm 1.8 attached and had to manually focus with my d40x.
it was a little tricky and took quite a lot of photos and in the end, this was the best shot.

it was quite overcast so my aperture was smaller than i wanted, this meant the dandelion seeds that had been blown off weren't in focus. i didn't want to up the ISO anymore. i'm still happy with the results though.
