Light in the shadows – Rhododendron impressions – Ellie Kennard 2016

The wonderful thing about our rhododendron bushes is that they grow in shady areas under trees and give unexpected bright spots of colour. In these darker locations there is not much natural light to use in photographing them which can make it harder to get a good photograph of a single hidden bloom. On top of that there is often a breeze when the sun does fall on them, so they are moving with small flashes of light in the shadows. I have tried before to get a multiple exposure of one of the light ones and this year I managed to catch the airy patterns and petals.
