  • Well done on the photobloggies. This is another one with some great colours – how are you lighting these shots?

  • Well done again :) Love how you light your shots, would be interested to see how you create them. Lovely work again.

  • BobC, Jonathan: lighting was from the sun but using a light tent in the garden.
