“Morning is an important time of day, because how you spend your morning can often tell you what kind of day you are going to have.”
― Lemony Snicket

This morning I found the tiniest patch of sunlight in the most perfect place – and therefore the photos for the day fell into my hands as they so often seem to be doing lately! Whilst I was taking them I also had Wandering Gypsy Spirit in mind, who mentioned me in a blog about Spring yesterday.


Hopefully these captures evoke a little bit more Spring into the inboxes of those who are still trundling through snow and wading through floodwater! Today started off beautifully with a tiny hint of frost and the bluest clearest skies. Let’s hope it continues!

“I know who I WAS when I got up this morning, but I think I must have been changed several times since then”
― Lewis Carroll

It’s that time of year when the morning performs wonderfully for the camera. The world is transformed in the early morning dew – sunlight glints, cobwebs materialise and something that looked dull and mundane yesterday, is vibrant and alluring today.

I ventured through the village early this morning to get my shots, I decided that the garden had enough attention over the past few days and it was time to go out and capture something fresh. I wasn’t disappointed.

Recently a lot of people have been asking me about my Photography equipment and the efforts I go to, in order to get my images. I spend probably one day a week actually taking time and efforts over Photography – that’s it. The rest of the days I capture things as I go along, taking photos here and there and really not planning at all. I rarely use a tripod, tripods get in the way. They trip me up most of the time which is most annoying! I take simply my DSLR which is a Sony A57, a Portrait Lens which I use as a macro lens…an 18 – 55 wide lens and a 70 – 300mm zoom lens. Spare batteries are a necessity!

The feedback I get every day, always amazes me. I chucked some pears on the kitchen table one day and half heartedly snapped away and the response was incredible. As I’ve mentioned before, lying in a flowerbed for a few minutes shooting droplets on a flower got me a freshly pressed award – which meant that over 100s of people visited my blog that day. It’s the simple things, that seem to catch people’s eyes. And in striving to capture the simple things – you really don’t have to try very hard.
