My top 5 pictures of 2017 for the Gray card end of year extravaganza. They are in no particular order. 

Thanks to all of you for a wonderful 2017. I have greatly enjoyed all the different types of photography that all of you offer on Tumblr. Keep up the good work and I’ll see you in 2018!

There weren’t as many ladybug photoshoot opportunities this year. The weather hasn’t been great and I was busy with other (more boring) things too. Yet, I still managed to try something new with my favoured combination of a ladybug and crocuses. 

There is a rather flowery park about 50m from my house that I only recently discovered. I am unsure how I missed it all this time, but I am rather happy I did find it. These pink flowers are my favourites thus far. I hope I can get a great shot of water lilies in the near future. No succes as of yet, but I’ll keep trying.
