My Favourite Three


Oh my God, I didn’t know how hard this was. In my Five at Five Challenge, I ask my featured photographers to pick 5 of their favourite images. I never knew how hard it was. But I will do my best for the Lens-Artists Photography Challenge.

Sarah who is hosting this week’s challenge asks us to pick 3 favourite images. And for me it has to be floral photographs. In fact, one of my choices is one I photographed today with my 60mm Macro Lens.

geranium flower

Today I photographed this beautiful Geranium flower at Great Comp Gardens, and the reason I have chosen it is simply because I love how my macro lens, blurred the background and showed the veins of deep pink in the petals.

My second photograph has to be a hydrangea. I love hydrangeas and whenever I see a bush, that is it… I am there photographing these beautiful blooms. Hydrangeas bring back childhood memories of a bush that was in my nan’s garden. To me as a small child it seemed massive. That is one flower that I love growing in tubs in my back-garden.

My final image has to be a pink rose I photographed at Nymans in West Sussex. Like hydrangeas, roses are also my favourite. If I see a sign for rose garden or a rose growing… that is, it! I am in there with my camera photographing these beautiful blooms. Roses remind me of my dad… they were his favourite flowers as well. Especially red roses. I can remember our garden being full of red rose buds.

  1. Beautiful! I especially like the last photo. Roses were my mother’s favorite too & she had a rose bush with exactly this color.

  9. These are gorgeous – thanks so much for sharing them for the challenge 🙂 I especially love the softness of the last image, of the rose. It could make a really special greetings card, for a birthday or thank you perhaps?
