Thought I’d add some rich colours to this blog and as it’s Autumn there’s plenty of gorgeous rich tones around. The following shots are of the same leaf taken at the Tropical Gardens in Abbotsbury in Dorset. They flood light part of the gardens for a month, so I thought I’d try some night photography – luckily it wasn’t windy!
The above shot was taken whilst it was still light. The next two shots are of the same leaf but from different angles taken after the sun went down. The lighting purely comes for the flood lights.
I haven’t spent so long isnsuch an uncomfortable position for a long time – it’s first time I’ve used my tripod in ages!!
Overall it was a fun evening experimenting and swearing endless at my camera and my stupid settings!!
