This is a straightforward picture but it took a number of visits to the village to get the right combination of good weather and lighting conditions.
It’s vital for a shot like this to have good detail and greatdepth of field.
I was able to do this by combining a wide angle lens – a 28-75 Tamron SP with a small aperture.
I was not able to use a tripod as I was shooting over the hedge.
