There is nothing I like better than getting outside on a sunny day with my camera capturing some pretty flower pictures. This bank holiday was no exception and seeing as the weather has been pretty shocking so far this year I jumped at the opportunity to join some friends at Harcourt Arboretum in Oxford for a picnic and a wander.
It was so peaceful there and was lovely to be greeted by a beautiful peacock.
I challenged myself to sticking to my 50mm lens, I don't use it very often so thought this was a perfect time for a challenge. Obviously the only real challenge was that I couldn't zoom in and out so had to move myself rather than the lens but I am still very happy with my results.
Our visit was perfectly timed for the bluebells and most of the rhododendrons were out in full bloom, although I'm sure in a couple of weeks they would all be open.
Thank you for visiting and hope you have enjoyed.
