Young Hazel Catkins

Young Hazel Catkins

I was asked to provide a print to be dedicated to the BP tanker British Hazel on her launch in November 2003. After a long search for a hazel tree in Southampton I finally tracked down a small grove in the Hawthorn Centre in a corner of Southampton Common. Taken with the 1Ds and 100 mm macro lens, with a monopod for stability. The day was bright but breezy and the catkins were about 8 feet above ground, so the pictures were not as sharp as I would have liked. This is my favourite from the day.

This is the one that was actually chosen - the 'landscape' format won the day!
