Finding the right flower was easy.

Finding the right perspective was not.

All last week I wanted to photograph a lily in the garden. Each day I tried, but the light was wrong, or the background was cluttered, or it was too breezy, or insects kept landing on it.

I couldn’t get myself into the right position to take a shot either, having forgotten that my camera has a tilting screen.

Then early yesterday morning everything came together just how I’d imagined. Sometimes you just get lucky:

This week I’ve got my beady photographic eye on a tub of Agapanthus.

Wish me luck and watch this space!
