ShareMondays2020 – Budding

A bit of creative stuff for you all this week, inspired by the beautiful shaping and colours of the amazing buds of a tropical plant in the Glasshouse, at RHS Wisley Gardens.

ShareMondays2019 – Tulip Dreams

Guildford Castle always produces a magical display of tulips in the gardens of the old moat! I’ve been playing with using in-camera multiple exposures and extra blur from Nik Analog Efex and Photoshop. I love the way it’s been working with the pastels of the Spring blooms! Happy Easter and good luck to everyone entering today’s Twitter comps!
