The next blog post *will* be a recipe, I promise, but in the meantime I just wanted to add some more photos taken on the grounds at Hughenden Manor. The two photos you see above are my very favourites. I mean, how can you not love these three little ones? I was so enchanted; all I could do was stare and coo at them. Awww. I totally forgot I had a camera with me. When I realised I could take them home with me, as in within an image, I started to click away like a mad woman! That being said, I wasn’t using the right lens for the job, so the first handful turned out to be rubbish. J then gave me my zoom lens, and told me to run to the bend at the stream and wait for them to come closer. It worked. The little babies weren’t having none of it though and started paddling like rockets, barely giving me any good angles. Case in point: size doesn’t always equate to speed! Don’t you just love them?
These are a set of photos I took at Hughenden Manor. By far it was one of the most enjoyable visits, mostly because of the variety of images I managed to capture. Also I was in the mood of taking loads, which to be honest, rarely happens these days. The weather really helped though. One of the first things I learnt from J is that sometimes the gloomier it is, the better your pictures will be. The problem is that for me, gloomy weather means less inspiration. However, this was not the case here. The clouds removed any extra glare and intensified the colours.
