Teazel along Tripps Drove; Godney Moor, on the Somerset Levels; 26 Jul 2012.

I don’t take many pictures of flowers, but early one peaceful and gorgeous morning along Tripps Drove I saw these Teazels beside a water-filled ditch – just before, my attention distracted, a horsefly had his fill from me.

And here, for once, I’ve given SEP2 its head and followed where it led – the Yellowed 2 preset looked good and here it is border and all, along with some minor adjustments, and also extensive restoration of colour.

D700 with 70-300 Nikkor at 270mm; 400 ISO; converted to mono and re-coloured using Silver Efex Pro 2.

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.

      Granddaughter sounds good … love ’em … couldn’t eat a whole one though … I bet you’re a great granny … why? … well call it my male intertition (is that the word?) …. say hello to her from me and thank her for me, glad you two like it … you’re exactly right about standing off a bit … can’t imagine any ardent suitor “saying it with teazels”! Hope you’re doing ok, thinking of you often. ATP xxx 🙂
