The first thing to catch my eye were the lupins. I've always liked their leaves. Great textures and patterns that I think are perhaps best captured with a monochrome treatment.
After the lupins I headed down towards the lake where there was this gorgeous tree with some quite stunning cones. I;m afraid I don't know the name of the tree, but if you do, please let me know. Again, a monochrome treatment with a light vignette ... sounds like a salad! The shots have a bit of an old style look to them which I must admit to quite liking. Perhaps let me know what you think?
