Photo365 – Day 259 – it’s raining

I’m still making the most of the poppies that grew in my garden and I decided to try out my new hose pipe (bought for £4 from Tesco yesterday). I took the Elincrom D-Lite flash outdoors and positioned it to the right and behind the poppy heads. I then set the Pentax K20D camera up in front and at a distance using the Tamron 500mm Mirror lens for the tight frame. I then set the hose going and pointed it upwards so the water went up and then fell down over the poppy heads to give the effect of rain.

Photo365 – Day 46 – Window

It’s been raining all day and making those small pattering sounds on the window. So here’s my window looking out. Focus is on the reflections of the background tree in the drops. A wide aperture was used to make the tree branches totally out of focus and abstract in look.
