I've had a few days off work (hence being more chatty on the forum recently) and today I made the effort to dig out a camera to photograph something before they were past their best.

Unfortunately, like so many photographs one sees before digging out the camera these images ended up nothing like I expected them to end up but at least I've captured some of the contrast of colour that I liked.

Taken with my current favourite lens, Sigma 35mm f/1.8 ART as I like the bokeh it produces in contrast to what is in focus (just :) - it was quite windy)

I think maybe a littler later in the afternoon or earlier in the morning might have made them pop more. Otherwise, they look good.

Thanks Edward! I’ve just been trying to find the app so I can jump on easier. Does it still exist?

It doesn’t exist now Katie. Mobile web browsing the forum is an easy experience though, at least on an IPhone.

Love these, but my favourite is #3, with the shallow dof and background blur
