On our return from Scotland we had a short stopover in Leeds and took the opportunity of visiting RHS Harlow Carr. The great thing about these gardens is that they’re always different. They evolve and change; the seasons change to produce different displays and the weather also changes. So you can’t go often enough … if you’ve got your macro lens with you!
Here are a selection of the shots I took during our visit. My favourites? The close-ups of the fritillary and the buds, and the garden shed where I exposed for the shadows knowing I could get the highlights (outside the door of the shed) back in post-processing, which I did. These little things I’m beginning to learn!
The pictures can also be seen in a Flickr album with the EXIF data.
