Spring Brides in Walsingham

March 28, 2014  •  Leave a Comment

In February we went to visit some friends of ours in Norfolk, UK. On the Saturday we visited Cromer and walked along the seafront, which was very bracing! and as it turned out wet as well and it rained. But the Sunday was completely different. We went to visit the Eleventh Century village of Little  Walsingham, which is where the Shrine of Our Lady of Walsingham is to be found.

The grounds of Walsingham Abbey are famous for their Snowdrops. We were amazed at the variety of different snowdrops. You could go through like thinking that all snowdrops are the same ... until you visit here. We found tall ones and short ones. Single ones and double ones. 

They reminded me very much of Spring Brides showing off their Beautiful Dresses on their Wedding Day!

The secret to getting exciting snowdrop pictures is to get down low, kneel or lie on the floor, change your camera angle and isolate the flowers from the background. Play with different aperture and speed combinations. Most of all take your camera off Automatic and the 'P' setting and experiment
