All-time favourite photo

The final (!) photo challenge from the Daily Post is for a favourite photo of all time.
This is a difficult choice to make. I looked through my photos starting with the most recent ones, avoiding ones I have entered for competitions or posted here previously. The first one, which seemed worth sharing, was from August last year. It was taken in a wild flower garden, which has featured on this blog. I like the light on the teasels.

Beauty from twisted stems

To enjoy the blooms on clematis plants, we have used their natural tendency to twist and twine. They are supported by a wooden framework.

The first one to flower in spring is Clematis Montana. It grows quickly and threatens to smother the slower growing species, which flower later.

The photo challenge from the Daily Post is Twisted.

Waves

The changing moods of the sea never fail to fascinate me. With a delay on my camera’s shutter, I never know quite what will appear in a photo. I haven’t yet tried freeze frame from videos.
Here are a few snaps from the beginning of the month.
