Around the local fields rapeseed was in bloom and bees were busy collecting nectar thanks to a local beekeeper working with the farmer. Mid-May and despite the risk of a sting, I wanted to get closer to the handler to see the bees despite the risk of being stung.
It’s not a frequent habit of me to shoot frames low in detail, shape and colour. Yet these shots can carry more weight and thoughtful curiosity. I hope you enjoy these Clackmannanshire abstracts.
These were shot on an iPhone 4 in 2010 and are a good demonstration of how the iPhone camera (and others) have transformed photography. Its only weakness was wild swings in colour temperature from shot to shot, for which I corrected in this collection. These were taken around the rolling fields in Clackmannanshire at the foot of the Ochil Hills.
