For the summer solstice, I give you flowers

For the summer solstice, I give you flowers

I like using the ability of photography to show worlds that are often hidden from view. I do this when documenting building projects that are obscured from the public by hoardings, or when photographing work environments and private events.

In a completely different way, photography can record situations that we can’t physically see with our eyes. For example, recently I was visiting my friend’s allotment when she was watering her roses.

My camera was able to catch a moment of calm and stillness within the chaos of the water spray. I felt like it almost gave me a little peak into the secret lives of flowers.

If you would like me to capture with my camera worlds that are important to you, please get in touch. More of my landscape photographs can be found here.

Death by flowers

Death by flowers

From purple woodlands full of bluebells to golden fields of rape flowers, the Sussex landscape is covered in vibrant colours at this time of year. Currently, there are great swathes of agricultural land carpeted in these deep yellow flowers, the seeds of which produce the prized Sussex rape seed oil.

This shot was planned with my husband, who wanted to see if we could get a photo of someone drowning in flowers. Are the hands asking to be saved from death by blossom or are they surrendering to the joy of golden bliss? I truly don’t know. More landscape photographs can be found here.
