Mount Usher – Up Close and Personal
I was determined to re-visit Mount Usher Gardens before our glorious Irish summer of 2014 comes to an end. So, armed with just a 105mm macro lens on my camera, I headed off last Sunday afternoon to capture some colourful blooms (and a few other things) close-up. I’m not going to caption these pictures as I am not at all good when it comes to knowing the names of flowers and plants.
My next visit to Mount Usher will be in a couple of month’s time – hopefully to capture some of the autumn colours when they are at their best. In the meantime, I hope you enjoy these photos from the tail-end of summer in the heart of County Wicklow.
Thank you, Georgette.
Excellent John. Particularly like the butterfly shot, and the dying flowers make great subjects too.
Thanks Aidy … I agree about the dying flowers – they are surprisingly photogenic!
