Silent Sunday – early morning light




  1. Does Silent Sunday allow comments! I hope so, because I need to mark the arrival of my first email notification for your blog! And I also need to say, lovely background, and what’s the flower? If I’m breaching silent protocol please tell me.

  2. A very nice blurred background indeed Sue. I also like the way that you resisted centreing the flower, and put it to one side of the photo.
    Best wishes, Pete.

  3. Sue and Meg, it’s an Allium, I always think they look like fireworks!

  4. pretty, pretty picture – is this with the new camera Sue? If so what lens did you use? I’m weighing in heavily on the Olympus OMD-EM10 (I like the EM1 but it is a lot more expensive)

      I use the 45mm f1.8 lens a lot (90mm equivalent on full frame) -marvellous little lens. But I took this with the 40-150 zoom which is a definite over-performer for the quite low price as long as you don’t go beyond 100mm (I have found) and you get great results!

  5. And what a lovely light that is Sue!

    • Sue

      It was great this morning, I got up early (well, early for me!) and went out to my favourite little garden to see what I could find… ­čÖé

  6. I was at Hidcote gardens in the Cotswolds last Thursday and they had a magnificent display of these – Allium – a member of the Onion family of plants. And that exhausts my knowledge on the subject! But they are a wonderful sight aren’t they.

  7. Beautifully composed Sue. Love the colours. And the inclusion of the little bud.

Over to you...
