There’s nothing like being out in the rain with your camera. As I said in last weeks 52 in 2015 post, the weather has been conspiring against me for weeks now, or so it seems. On the days that I’m free, we get wind and rain, when I’m busy and can’t get away, lovely blue skies with wispy clouds. And so it was like that last week. Well not exactly, The day started off as a lovely spring morning, perfect for photography. I could feel a trip to Newborough Forest coming on to visit the rare Red Squirrels. Fifty minutes later I was pulling into the car park just as the heavens opened. A totally wasted journey. Well not quite. Undaunted I decided to have a walk through the forest anyway, never saw a squirrel. come to think of it I hardly saw any birds either.
But success! I did manage to capture two usable photographs for the 52 challenge
Walking through the forest I found an oily brackish pool of water where the raindrops were creating ripples on the surface. Perfect as an abstract photograph. My second photograph was a fern leaf which I converted to Black and White, adding a highlight to the centre of the leaf
That’s it for this week.
