Another year is slipping away – but at least it gives us the technicolor beauty of the autumn season
A macro shot of a Crane Fly taken on the Olympus EM-1 MkII
I used a 60mm macro lens, single flash and a small soft box.
I got two shots – this was the second – before he got bored and flew off.
Taken at our local RSPB reserve.
These birds are just beautiful!
Well, it does look like one, doesn’t it?
A studio shot – two flash heads, reflectors and some Photoshop magic for the textures.
This young Goldfinch visited the bird feeder in our garden.
Yesterday (s)he was here with the parents – but I missed that one 😦
Some photography friends and I went to the Hitchin Lavender fields in Hertfordshire.
Here are some of my images from the trip.
All taken on my Olympus EM-1 MkII.

Taken in Blake’s Wood near Danbury in Essex, the visit was initially to take shots of the bluebells ( for which Blake’s Wood is renowned ) – but I came across these Fiddleheads : developing ferns – before they have unfurled into the adult plant we are more used to.
Blossom, blown from my neighbour’s tree!
Pansies – pressed and dried, with a touch of texture …..
