Wordless Wednesday : Denmans Garden, West Sussex

…. Or not so Wordless Wednesday as it turns out.

I not truly playing the Wordless Wednesday game here  because having posted this originally just Wordless Wednesday photos with no words. I have decided to enter the above photograph into the Gardening Gone Wild Photo Contest for October 2011.    The  theme is Fill the Frame and thank you The Sage Butterfly (below)  for the suggestion.

The photo is one of a series I took as homework set at my photography course.   The aim was to get to grips with setting  f stops manually and learn about depth of field.   This photo has a f stop of  f/13 with an exposure of 1/60 secs and an ISO 100.  It still doesn’t mean too much too me but I am slowly beginning to get the hang of it, although it’s early days and I have a long way to go from “point and shoot” photography.

These are just beautiful blue Aconitum.

  1. Lovely pic Ronnie. I really should invest the time in getting to grips with the manual photography thing.

  3. Lovely! You should submit that first photo to Gardening Gone Wild’s October photo contest. It seems perfect for the theme. I haven’t found what I am going to submit yet, if I do find something. Denmans Garden is full of color and texture…beautiful!

    1. I have taken you up on that suggestion but not sure if the photo meets the correct size required. We shall see.

  4. I like the idea of “wordless Wednesday!” And if you fall behind schedule, you could have a “text-less Thursday” now and again.

    It is a pleasure to find another 60-something blogger, even if we are half a world away.
    Cheers!

    1. Hi! Nice to “meet” you – thank you for dropping by to read my blog and leave a comment. Wordless Wedneday is a great way just to share some photos. Textless Thursday sounds a good idea too 🙂
