Nikon D90 using my Sigma 70-200mm HSM II Macro Lens

The meadows in Great Dixter are one of the most beautiful places I’ve seen for a long time.

They are full of Ox-Eye Daisies, Dandelions, Grasses and Buttercups. I spent a lot of time there enjoying the views :o)

    Great composition, the shallow depth of field gives a beautiful painterly feel to it… Nice shot Melanie :)

  • Thanks Ian :o) it took me a while to get the shot I was after especially as the weather was a bit moody that day. I’m quite pleased with the result though :o)

    Very nice. I particularly like the sharp foreground with the shallow depth-of-field, highlighting the subject(s). Where is Great Dixter?

  • Hi Carl :o) I really appreciate your comments. Thank you!!
    Great Dixter is in Rye, Kent. Here’s a link to their website and map
    It’s definitely worth a visit! :o)
