This was the first time I’ve attempted to photograph snowdrops. Nursing a bad back, I haven’t managed to do much photography lately, but this morning I headed out with just my Fuji X-T1 and a 60mm macro lens so I could travel light.
I’d seen some snowdrops in Richmond Park previously and I was lucky with the light. Although mid-morning by the time I arrived and the winter sun bright in the sky, these snowdrops were in partial shade with dappled light coming through overhead trees.
I hadn’t brought my usual tripod but I did have a small table-top tripod that managed to suffice.
The light on the background made some lovely bokeh with the melting frost and dew on the ground.
One to try again and maybe I’ll even get a chance to capture them in snow!
