100 Steps at the underpass

Myfanwy at http://chittlechattle.com/ began taking photos on a 100 step walk and several bloggers have followed her idea, it’s a great way of becoming aware of your surroundings. I’ve tried it from home and from work, and yesterday as I was at Rosemoor, where there is beauty in every direction, I decided to choose a particular starting point. Half way around the garden it changes its nature by going through an underpass on the A3124 to the original garden bequeathed by Lady Anne and bearing her name.

I walked 50 steps in each direction from here and saw this cute bird, part of the sculpture exhibition

Plenty of greenery of course but I like this leaf

These are my favourites, I love the way the shadow became blue and I have no idea why, but I used my phone camera to take these shots because I was dodging the rain.

  1. I L O V E these pictures! I’m only envious because I can’t get there to take a look myself. It’s years since I visited. Thanks for taking part, Gilly, hope you will do so again sometime.

  2. I like the two leaves – did the second one fall off a huge beautiful stainless steel tree planted by Lady Anne with her own hands (and blowtorch)? 😉 And it’s odd how being in shadow turns things blue, at least as seen by cameras.

  3. that large leaf is so cool Gilly. i did this a while ago for a phot challenge and loved it it was such fun to seek and find something you might not have seen otherwise

I would love to hear from you . . .
