The Photo Gallery: Sunshine

The Photo Gallery: Week 101
Sunshine



What can I say? I love this picture. I know, my modesty is overwhelming! The Gallery theme this week is sunshine and I have had a great time thinking about what picture to take. 

I started off taking pictures of my son with ice cream all over his face. That was messy. Then I got on to taking pictures of flowers in the sunshine. Finally, whilst at my Grandma's Bed & Breakfast in Grassington this weekend, I went out into a field and took this picture of the buttercups reaching up to the sky. I like the focus of the picture and the scenic Yorkshire Dales in the background.

Thank you Tara for getting me out and about in the sunshine with my camera. Although this was taken with my trusty mobile phone!

  5. That is such a gorgeous photo! I know what you mean I take so many photos of the kids and then every now a scene of a plant will catch my eye, but sunny days do make for gorgeous photos like this!

  8. Lovely shot. And I simply love those flowers. We want to move to Yorkshire one day. That photo is another reason why.

  9. I love buttercups. The fields behind me are completely covered in them and the grass has grown so tall with them that I lose the doggie on walks...next time, I'm bringing my camera....
