I used the light from the sunset which was particularly golden that night I hand held the dandelion to see if I could use the natural light with effect.

We live in the West of France in the Poitou Charentes region, I love where we live and take a lot of inspiration for photography from the countryside and wonderful regions around us.

I have not had any formal training and just feel comfortable behind the lens, enjoying the feeling of liberty and fun that is to be had with a camera.

I also have a FaceBook Page

    Simply beautiful, love the natural light through it great idea to pick it and hold it to the light then lie on your stomach trying to get it right. LOL

  • Thank you Karen – did try the low shots first but the sun was in the wrong position! Had to move around the garden to get it at the angle I was aiming for though :)
