Royal Fort Gardens: #3 - 2014


Daffodils in the Fort Royal Gardens, Bristol 2014





After coming down the footpath from Fort Royal House, if you turn right at the fork and go past the mass of Crocuses you come to a wide green lawn that slopes up into a hill on the right and down into a pond in the centre with a footpath along the left which runs along the boarder of the garden buffered from the wall that runs along the boundary with more vegetation.

 Since most of the photographs I take are outdoors I tend to work exclusively with natural light which can make for interesting shots especially when there are clouds or the light changes suddenly. Sometimes I visit the same place more than once in order to get different light while on other occasions the light changes within minutes which can be either good or bad depending on the situation. The photos above and below were taken within minutes of each other.

 I know I need to learn more about the various functions on the camera and probably experiment with shutter speeds and all the other things I can do, not to mention editing photos beyond resizing and cropping, but for now this is all I am able to do.

 If you look closely in the midst of the daffodils is a clump of purple corcuses.

 When I first came through this part of the garden it was kind of boring with just the bench over looking the lawn but now that the Daffodils and crocuses have emerged clothing the hillside in thier glorious colours it is very nice especially when the sun comes out.
