Totally Stumped

Posted on | May 23, 2012 | 9 Comments |

When Apollo and I were ambling around the extensive gardens of Larnach Castle, we found all sorts of beautiful areas – and I knew that if I could manage it, I would return to photograph myself in them. One such spot was in the ‘Rain Forest Garden’  quite a distance from the castle, near the entrance gatehouse.

With a stump so large and gnarly, how could I resist? Especially with the delightful frisson of danger that a walking path, a road behind, and a carpark nearby provided.

I was particularly happy with the framing of leaves – but it was a challenge keeping the camera aimed correctly!

What is this expression on my face?  Possibly being unimpressed at the previous photo (not shown), where I managed to get myself not in frame at all!

At last – the opportunity I was waiting for. Top off, nipples hard, and that’s another Scavenger Hunt photo in the bag :)

    I wish I either lived more in the countryside, had a car or was braver! It looks such fun to join in! Sadly, rural places are out of easy reach and the city is a little populated for my liking!

    We love your expression in the second shot! But our favorite is the third, with your top cast off completely. Yum.

    Rebel – I certainly did!

    Lilly – The gardens there are gorgeous. I was so glad we were there for a few days, so I had lots of time to explore :)

    Penny – A chilly paradise, but yes!

    Molly – *chuckle*

    Blacksilk – Holidays are wonderful for getting photos like this. It certainly isn’t something I’d be able to get in the city, either.

    Kazi – Says the woman who gets photos that continually amaze me :)

    Jack and Jill – *grins* Danke!

    Miss L – Your comment cracked me up, because I wear a bra as little as I can get away with! Maybe 10% of the time in summer. A little more often in the cold months – 40% of the time, perhaps.

    xx Dee
