After losing my mojo the last week or so I needed something to get me excited again. I needed to photograph one of the things that I love to photograph, and that is flowers, colour and countryside. So we visited Clyne Gardens in Swansea, South Wales, and my spirits rose as we entered the gates and seen the beauty in front of us.
Today was our weekly meet with Great Photography Walks South Wales, a group that I started four years ago, and one which keeps me sane most of the time. We had visited Clyne Gardens in the past, but it was such a beautiful place, we just had to visit it again. We were not expecting it to be as in bloom as it was, and it was beautiful!
I used my Fujifilm X-T3 along with the 15-45mm lens and photographed in my Colour Chrome+ recipe, with the “chrome” option turned off. Today was also the first time in as long as I can remember that I shot jpeg only, and it’s not going to be the last, as it’s just been a big relief to get home and have the images as I need them. All the standard images today were resized in Photoscape X Pro, and the only alteration was cropping or straightening. The infrared images were edited in ON1 Photo Raw 2021.
It was a great day, I took 107 photographs, no bracketing at all, 8 infrared images and the 6 long exposures. If you ever get the chance to visit Swansea, Clyne Gardens is easy to find and beautiful to visit, being located along the seafront in Blackpill (entrance next to The Woodman Pub).
