Not always welcome…


As summer approaches the flowers start to come out in force and it is so tempting to make photographic images of them.  But therein lies the problem.  Flowers need light to look their best but the combination of the natural luminance of the flower and the harsh light can ruin things.   Over the past couple of days I have spent at the wonderful gardens at Hidcote Manor and the image I captured there illustrate the point flawlessly.  The first day was bright sunlight – the second bright but very damp.


For me the bright damp day will always win.

    Ah yes, I remember those amber- coloured tulips from last year at Hidcote.
