Early morning sunlight in our back garden; 9 Jul 2013.

Looking down the garden through a thin screen of tall grasses.  A very shallow depth of field, produced by using a long telephoto at close quarters, has thrown nearly everything except the closest grasses far out of focus.  This is not an accurate representation of the scene, but rather an impression of how it looked.

The line of dark tones at the top of the frame are the shadows below the hedge at the bottom of the garden.

About Adrian Lewis
Photographer working in monochrome, colour and combinations of the two - with a great liking for all sorts of images, including Minimalism, landscapes, abstracts, soft colour, people, movement, nature - I like to be adventurous in my photography, trying new ideas and working in many genres. And I'm fond of Full English Breakfasts and Duvel golden ale, though not necessarily together.

    It’s very peaceful down here in the long grass, I’ll hide out here for a little longer and enjoy the sunshine if that’s ok. 🙂

    The wonders of nature. It’s a great shot. How the background is out of focus and the blades are the the shot. It all works very well. I ‘ve been away that’s why I’ve been silent for so long. Relaxing in Jamaica mom, had time to reflect, write and did several new collages. I .we’d to post . As always The Professional Cannon


This blog has two pleasures for me - creating the images and hearing from you - so get your thoughts out to the world!
