Bollin Reeds

Grass Bow

Down by the river Bollin in Prestbury, Cheshire

It is a lot more spring-like down here now, new shoots are in abundance and the valley is starting to look green again — just. This shot was taken with my new Nikon D300S fitted with a vintage Nikkor AI 35mm f2.8 lens, one of my all time favs! I wanted to create semi abstract images with a lot of bokeh, to try to denature my subject and remove it from its normal context — graphic intentions, interest in textures and shape etc.
