Good Gardens to take in some Snowdrop Action

February is a wonderful time to visit one of the UK’s many snowdrop collections. Have your camera ready at Benington Lordship in Hertfordshire, where huge drifts of single and double snowdrops carpet the moat of a ruined Norman castle.  Anglesey Abbey near Cambridge is home to one of the most significant snowdrop collections in the country, with some 240 cultivars to enjoy and compare. Or, take a stroll through the woodland at Cambo Estate Gardens in Fife, carpeted with snowdrops, snowflakes and aconites.

Echinops Timelapse

Time-lapse photography is a cinematography technique whereby each film frame is captured at a rate much slower than it will be played back. When replayed at normal speed, time appears to be moving faster and thus lapsing. Time-lapse photography can be considered to be the opposite of high speed photography.
Processes that would normally appear subtle to the human eye, such as the motion of the sun and stars in the sky, become very pronounced. Time-lapse is the extreme version of the cinematography technique of undercranking, and can be confused with stop motion animation.

It works particularly well on plants – showing off their beauty through speeded up growth. Something we miss with the naked eye in our normal time and space..

This Masterclass was developed for Oxford College of Garden Design.  It was designed to help the post graduate design students understand more about the value of marketing their businesses through the internet.  The students had varying degrees of ‘tech saviness’.   It has also been published more widely to help the garden design industry in general get to grips with developing their websites and social networking.  Please feel free to view and pass on to others who find this useful.
