Westonbirt Arboretum with a new ‘why dangle’ lens

Boxing Day and the sun shone – perfect opportunity to try out my unexpected Christmas present of a new and very swish 10mm-20mm lens…wide angle (or why dangle as we like to call it in my family).

Starting with the main arboretum at Westonbirt…

Love the light this time of year when the sun is so low.

Is it wrong to love the distortion in portraits with a wide angle lens?

On to the Silk Wood…

…with all the dogs and children. Such a big space it can take everyone and still remain peaceful.

Our long shadows in the chilly sun.

Never tire of the treetop walkway.

Home again and using the lens to capture an image of our crabapple tree, decorated with cranberries, popcorn and festive suet shapes for the birds to enjoy.
