What I did today - Thu 26th June 2014

As we approach the end of June I am on the last round of poppy field workshops in Bewdley.  The 10 days of dry hot weather has really taken its toll on the poppies and they are certainly on the the turn even though there are still plenty of unopened buds.  Maybe the heavy rain forecast in the next 48hrs will allow one final flurry of magnificent reds.

Despite the mixed flowering quality, the variety of shots is still plentiful and I especially like the chance to shoot some close up macro images of seed heads in the many states of decay and ripening.

The photographic workshop attendees were all great fun and worked hard with composition and creating some great shots of the traditional landscape views and lots of close up work isolating the subject and bringing the details to the fore.

Below is a selection from some of the shots I took demonstrating techniques and composition from the workshop and a few of the attendees enjoying the shoot.

I love the interconnecting triangles in this image - nature is always providing this geometry in the landscape - you just have to look for it
