Photo Waddle: Nymans

This was a different to other waddles as a car was used as the main means of transportation. It’s funny how I never been interested in driving, I don’t find it fun, and I don’t feel I need it. Until I started photography that is. Living in a city like London offers a plethora of wonderful things to photograph, but you are still mostly restricted to urban environments and now for the first time I feel restricted. Having said that I still have not taken any steps towards learning how to drive, but this post is not about driving it is about Nymans, a National Trust garden in Sussex.

Big thanks to my friend Adrian for volunteering his company, time and his car for a day of photography.

Nymans has a lot to offer the curious photographer. It has a massive garden, a lovely stone manor, a little bookshop and is surrounded by a forest with a little lake. We had an absolute blast running around in there taking photos of flowers, trees and whatever we could see. The purpose of the visit was to photograph Snowdrops, but we did get there rather late and they were not as fresh as I had hoped. Funny thing is when I came home I realised we had quite a few Snowdrops growing in our garden.

All pictures taken with the X-T1, XF16-55mm, XF10-24mm. I hope you like them.
