I’m fascinated, as you know, by patterns. It’s one of many subjects we will be covering at the photography course I’m running at Ham House in south London on 3rd October (there are still a few places available!).
Today’s picture is a case in point. I took it in the early spring on a recce visit to Ham and its beautiful gardens. This section of formal planting is one which really caught my eye, particularly as you get strikingly different perspectives on it as you vary your position. I love the contrast between the defined angularity of the cones, the gentle undulation of the rounded bushes between, and the soft almost gauze-like texture of the faint haze in the air.
