Photos from another garden

I like taking garden photos. This is because I have a garden that I quite like, generally. I also like my in-laws garden, which has recently had a bit of a horticultural make-over that looked fantastic when we visited in August (yes, still on the backlog…) This wasn’t long after I’d got the macro lens and I wanted to have a play with the f2.8 aperture it offered.

100mm, f/2.8, 1/160 sec, ISO 640

100mm, f/2.8, 1/125 sec, ISO 500

100mm, f/2.8, 1/125 sec, ISO 800

100mm, f/2.8, 1/125 sec, ISO 1600

100mm, f/2.8, 1/160 sec, ISO 160
This lacks in the foreground by being in the shade, but I just love the bokeh

My favourite, for the wispy grass and offset out of focus flower

On my return to the house, I discovered I was being watched.

  1. Oooh, nice. I can clearly see why you like the wispy grass shot, but my favourites are the bokeh shot (I don’t really notice any poorly-litness of the grass in the foreground), and, slightly edging it out, the shot before it. I love the solid green of the background of that image, and the detail on the leaves.

    I wish my ‘garden’ (such that it is, as I live in a flat) contained such interesting flora. Or fauna, for that matter, it’s just squirrels and cats and pigeons where I live.

    • Intriguing, as I thought that one was possibly a bit boring! Once again, who knows what each individual will like.

      More garden photos to come, although from our own one so not as nice. The trouble with having a garden is that I spend a lot of time in it with the camera, taking endless photos that I then take forever to upload, edit and write up…
