Out In the Countryside

This is my contribution to Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge: Out In the Countryside prompt.

A small selection of photos from the South Bruce Peninsula, Ontario taken over the weekend after Dale posted the prompt.

By some strange coincidence all the photos were taken with the same camera and lens combination, my Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark II and the TTArtisan 35mm lens.

I thought the background was different and used negative space to emphasize it. Another test of the TTArtisan 50mm f/1.2 lens for photographing flowers and plants.
