#MySundayPhoto - Summer Lovin'

When walking around the countryside and the afternoon sunlight catches the meadow of flowers perfectly. 

With the bright blue background, it seems like the perfect summer scene. After walking back my eyes were streaming from hayfever, capturing this photo came at a price but it was certainly worth it.

#MySundayPhoto - National Trust Colours

It's at this time of year when National Trust gardens really come into their own, the flowers, the trees and the wildlife. 

Our local garden Sheffield Park is simply stunning, they have the most beautiful waterlilies filling the ponds. Mix this with the wonderful rhododendrons their really isn't a better sight at this time of the year.

#MySundayPhoto - Woodland Path

I'm loving seeing the changes in the local woodland. A month back it was brown and lifeless, a couple of weeks ago full of bluebells and now they've gone it's bursting with green. 

I particularly like this photo with the path off to the right, the way it leads you into woods.

#MySundayPhoto - Blue Skies

One day of Spring and then rain the next, that seems to have been the theme for the past week. This was one of those dry days when we had blue skies and there was lush green grass. 

Now if we could have a nice spell of a few weeks like this we'd all be happy.

#MySundayPhoto - Smooth West Pier

On Friday I was in Brighton early morning and gave me the chance to take a photo of the West Pier. I wanted to try a longer exposure to smooth out the water and see what it would look like. 

This was taken using a Nikon D610, tripod, 10 stop ND filter and a 20-second exposure. 

I quite like the way it's come out.

#MySundayPhoto - Tulip

This wasn't meant to be the photo this week, I planned on something and that all went out the window when I damaged ligaments in my ankle on Monday. This has meant that walking has been a struggle so hiking for a beautiful landscape hasn't happened. 

Instead, I set up a tripod, camera and tulip to at least take a photo I was happy with.

#MySundayPhoto - Reflection

This is the cold Pells Pool, opening for the new season soon but at the moment I certainly don't fancy a swim in there. 

I'm pretty pleased with the way the reflection came out on this one, I think the slightly green water and the hint of sun trying to warm the day up helps.

#MySundayPhoto - St Paul's

The other day I headed up to London to take a few photos for a project. Whilst walking around I visited a tube station that offers a unique view of St Paul's Cathedral. 

The sun was shining, the sky bright blue it was the perfect day for photography in London. 

I thought about taking the light out in the middle but I hate removing things from photos that would normally be there. 

Oh this was taken on the Pixel 2.
