Garden Photography

Saturday 29th September 2012

September almost gone and I haven’t taken one Cornish landscape photograph this month.   Summer has gone and I didn’t take any photos of my garden.  My, these seasons pass quickly!  I decide on a project to photograph my garden at least two or three times every week throughout the year.  Here are a few photos I took this Saturday just before the sun went down.

Japanese Anemone – Honorine Jobert

I like the square format for flower photography and below is a crop of a photo taken immediately after the above one.  However in this instance I prefer the top photo.

Phormium Tenax – New Zealand Flax

Blue Thistle – Echinops

I didn’t take any photos of the thistles when they were in glorious flower!  Luckily Verbena Bonariensis flower for ever  and ever.

    • Thanks Jo. The top one is my favourite too. I must admit I have been looking at Sandra Bartocha’s website!
