Wet play

posted in: Flowers and plants | 0

The day began fine, but by the time I’d done some essential admin and got myself ready to go out it was raining. I went into the garden anyway, where despite the weather there were plenty of birds noodling around singing at each other, but I failed to capture a shot I liked, and was reduced to photographing wet blossom again.

I was on my way back to the house, with extremely wet feet, when I spotted a couple of damp dandelion clocks, and remembered having seen a shot similar to this in the SheClicks group on Facebook this morning. I thought that it might be fun to give it a try, and although I was under time pressure and didn’t take the amount of care I’d usually bestow on a project like this, I’m not wholly displeased with the result. It’s certainly different to my usual shtick, and when I have more time – and another fresh dandelion clock to work with – I may well try again, to see if I can come up with a better version.
