• A year of photographing flowers

    Photographing wildflowers last year

    I didn’t photograph wildflowers so much in 2017 – this is because after a couple of years of doing it, I realised that a photo of a daisy taken in 2015, for example, looks much like a photo of a daisy taken in 2016. However I now have a new camera, so photographing wildflowers looks to be back on the cards for 2018!

    Highlights of 2017 – not wild flowers but definitely floral.
