Powerlines, foxgloves & ferns

A couple more photos from my Dale Dyke reservoir hike, both featuring one of my regularly shot subjects: power lines.

These were the third and final shots from the roll respectively. I’m really happy with the first shot – the foxgloves add some nice, distinctive foreground interest.

I like the composition of the second image, but the foreground ferns are out of focus. I can’t remember if I’d opened the aperture deliberately to get a shallow depth of field, or if it was an accident – it’s not a shot that really benefits from a narrow depth of field if I’m honest.
