Before the StormCaptured at Kew
Image details - Before the Storm
It was very quiet in the gardens that late spring afternoon, storm clouds were brewing but there was still some hint of sunshine and colour in the sky. I used filters (and a long exposure time) to make the water in the pond look smooth which also gave me a decent reflection of the Palm House.
I included the lovely yellow Iris flowers in the foreground which I thought created a great contrast to the stormy sky and also showcase how full of life the surroundings of the pond are.
