The last Hydrangea of the season…

Visiting some old Photos…

I have been having a bit of a tidy up of my images on the PC and came across some old photos from a few years ago, images were OK, just need a few tweaks and some new Presets from Lightroom and they have new life again. A little simplistic for Still Life, but sometimes…
