The garden is blooming

This time last month our garden was awash with pink and blue from the two Clematis Montana and Forget-me-nots. I had to take some pictures – I hope you enjoy this small sample from that time.

Iris

Feeling withdrawal symptoms due to not using my camera for ages and since it is horrid outside I set to with a vase full of Iris and Pussy willow stems in a makeshift home studio. Have to say yet again the Fuji X-T1 and lenses have come through, so easy to use and such good results.

These were all taken in natural light coming through a north facing patio door with a Lastolight white background using a tripod and cable release, the first eight using the XF 18-135 lens and the last two my XC 50-230 zoom.
