Finding The Gold At The End Of The Rainbow ♥

Yesterday I found out that this little blog of mine is a finalist for Best Photography Blog in this years Blog Awards Ireland and I can't even tell you how shocked, delighted and overwhelmed I was by this. I am by no means a professional when it comes to photography but I have a passion for snapping pictures, capturing the beauty of the world around me and capturing moments of peoples lives on camera to be treasured forever. I'd like to say a big thank you to everyone who voted for me and to the people who judged my blog and my photography skills and deemed them good enough to be worthy of a finalist place, you have no idea how happy you've made me.

I am in the process of moving all the content from my other blog Fawns and Fables back to here. I just don't have the time to run two blogs and to be honest, it's lovely having everything in one place here, especially as I can show Tyler Lee all his memories and pictures on here one day, so expect lots of photography posts in the coming weeks. If I'm honest, I'm quite enjoying reminiscing over these photographs and our precious memories together.

Today I am sharing one of my favourite shoots of the past summer, the day when we went in search of a field of gold, and we didn't find just one, but two gorgeous golden fields of beautiful blooms. I was just itching to get out with my camera and capture the sea of yellow, having spotted the fields from my parents kitchen window, before the farmers spray it and it turns to black - quite less appealing to a photographers eye I'm sure you'll agree! I really love the pictures I captured of my son, his rainbow t-shirt really was perfect for finding the gold at the end of the rainbow - never say we don't dress accordingly for our adventures!

In the second field there were splashes of purple dotted amongst the yellow and it really was beautiful to see, along with the sunlight, it gave me the perfect sense of summer and now all I long for is the warmth of the summer sun. However, in the second field we were startled by two shots that sounded like gunshots, I thought they may have been a crow banger but they were so loud and in such quick succession too - perhaps the farmer wasn't pleased with our admiration of his stunning fields of gold? Sorry Mr. Farmer, we really didn't mean any harm!

Nevertheless, it was such a lovely little adventure and the perfect way to begin our Irish summer.

Now we can say we finally found the gold at the end of the rainbow, the most precious gold for me, of course, being those beautiful curls on my little loves head.
