This one started of as colour shot, but it just works so much better in black and white. Was playing with my ring flash off camera - you can see the strange highlights in some of the leaves. Will definitely have to get some kit to play with off camera flash some more - it adds a whole new range of possibilities.

The subject is hanging over the coal shed and is mature enough to produce flower heads in abundance. I just love the glossy leaves and the structure of the flower heads - Ivy is much under-rated.
