Summer meadows

Summer is fading and I'm missing glorious summer flower meadows already but also can't wait for autumn colour.

Mountain water

I've been having a good sort out through my summer pictures over the last few days. I like to allow my pictures to ferment slightly on my hard drives, sometimes that process takes longer than others and at the moment they're taking a while to fully ripen! I think I'm mixing my metaphors there! This summer water seems to have been a favourite subject, it's so calming to watch it constantly changing so here's the first of a little collection.

The rain this summer hasn't been great for my roses! I only have two bushes, I think this one is my favourite, I love the shape (and the fragrance!) but it catches and traps the raindrops and makes the petals rot. I keep giving the flowers a good shake but it's a challenge with so much rain! This one survived long enough for me to get in close with my macro lens. Swipe to see the full flower.

Summer reflections

I am suddenly aware that autumn is knocking on the door but it feels like summer hasn't really got started! ... and I feel like I've not really caught much of summer with my camera this year, last year we had so much more of summer to catch! This was taken in a typically British summer day, I was wearing full waterproofs and keeping a waterproof bag on standby, ready for my camera!

Summer poppies

After last year's feast of poppy fields this year in my area there were only a few small groups, not the mass of red however every year we love to hunt for these pretty, delicate flowers. This year I have spotted them mostly in mixed 'wildflower' meadows, grown partly for the benefit of the bees and bugs but I have to admit to loving this trend too!
