Favourite photos for 2014

2014 was going to be the year for taking more photos, practicing what I’ve learned and improving my understanding of ‘manual’ mode. Not sure that I’ve succeeded on all counts but here are ten of my favourite photos from 2014, some you will have seen before.

    Swell is an awesome cultural event and a photographers dream. I took photos in 2014 too.

      So true, especially if you can beat the crowds and go early in the morning 🙂 Thanks for stopping by!

    The parrots and the agapanthus are my faves. Wonderful shots, Sam!
    Our first snowdrops are out so the earth keeps turning 🙂 A very happy New Year to you and thanks for all your support.

    My two favourites are the Rainbow Lorikeets and the Water drops on Agapanthus flower.. the bookeh is fabulous, and the composition as well 🙂

      Thank you! I love the bokeh on those images as well, the zoom I use does a nice job 🙂
