Protea

By cattyal  
An early upload for me as I'm actually going out for the day! I am however taking two little wooden men with me as well - fingers crossed for some photo ops.

Anyway, just a straightforward Protea today, shot in natural light against the usual black velvet. Slightly cropped, one stray leaf removed and here it is.

Thank you everyone Smile

Indeed these aren't the easiest of flowers to photograph Helen - however having paid 2 for it I felt I had to try and will continue trying!

Sadly the boys didn't see light of day in the end Ali. The day started bright but by the time I reached my destination the rain had set in and I decided they were best kept in the dry. At least the pony had a lucky escape as I had been planning on using her as a prop!

The only shots taken today were en route - I was a passenger in the car so fortunately was able to dig out the camera to photograph a couple of Lama travelling in a trailer in front of the car Smile They weren't exactly EPZ standard shots but fun nevertheless.
