Our roving photographer Carolyn Roden has been zooming in to capture some close ups...
"Here are a few more little beauties from around the recreation ground area in Stalbridge. I love to take close-up photos of flowers because it shows us the delicacy and delight in the detail. Each one is a work of art in it's own right". - Carolyn Roden
Our roving photographer Carolyn Roden has been out and about again...this time capturing the variety of flowers found in one small section of Wood Lane in Stalbridge.
"When I went for a walk along Wood Lane, I had no intention of taking any pictures but then I spotted one white flower that I fell in love with and one flower led to another...and another....They were all taken within 50 yards of each other and shows what a wealth of beauty there is around us". - Carolyn Roden
Our roving photographer Carolyn Roden visits the River Stour at Blandford...
"The river was such a refreshing and tranquil place in the hot sunshine".
"The light quality in the sky was spectacular on Friday and then two hours later we received an unexpected hail and thunderstorm....so much fun!
The darker skies are taken on the day after Springfest as the weather changes from a cool Spring to a warmer glimpse of summer".
As part of our new photography series "Dorset Landscape Photography" we would like to welcome amateur photographer Carolyn Roden. Please click on the photo below to visit her page on this site after reading her introduction below.
"My name is Carolyn and I arrived in Stalbridge during the darkest days of December 2016.
I have been impressed by the friendliness of people here and have fallen in love with the dry stone walls, the trees and the expansive views.
When I walk, I like to stop and pause for a moment to absorb and reflect on the beauty of the tiny flowers growing from walls, the new leaves and stunning views and then I reach for my mobile phone and take a few photos.
So these pictures are a simple mirror of the beauty I see around me in Dorset and Stalbridge in particular. Nothing fancy, just my own joy of the intricacies I see around me."
