Those who know me would say I’m like a moth to light when I’m walking out with my camera, I love to capture nature bathed in natural light. Creating nature’s lantern’s at this time of year is extra special.
The photograph of a Hornbeam tree seed capsule above, is one I took a few years ago. I was excited when I glanced and saw it as a lantern hanging from the tree. I had to position myself so the seed capsule lit up when the sun was setting, and tried to reduce the flare off my camera lens. When you capture it perfectly, it’s like Magic!
Have a go the next time you are out on a walk with your camera. See if you can create your nature’s lanterns.
