I cut some branches of forsythia to bring into the house. It has delighted me with it’s freshness, yellowness and brightness as it blooms on my kitchen table. I thought I’d do a ‘study’ of the flower and try out a few camera techniques as I go. See what you think.
Blue is a very spring colour, particularly appealing after the grey of the winter. The spring blue skies are so vivid and welcoming and it is the perfect backdrop to the new spring growth found in trees and bushes. Flowers, too, are dazzling to the eye. However, not many flowers offer a pure blue colour but I found one – the iris. Enjoy my adventure into the blue!
Sometimes it pays to look closer. On my walk yesterday, there was a definite change in the colours of the vegetation around me – primarily lead by the mosses. So I took a closer look. The red hew on the granite rocks was warming but looking closer the moss was in ‘flower’. The green fresh moss was not made up of one type of moss but two!!! Get down on your hands and knees next time. Nature is amazing.
Bokeh – the effect of blurring in a photograph. I’ve used it twice here. Snowdrops and Aliums.
Hidden and often forgotten beauty can be found in the upturned head of a snowdrop.
Droplets look more like mercury than water.
We get many different cloud formations over the mountains of British Columbia. I tried taking photos of them today in monochrome which changes the perspective. It’s good to look at familiar things in a different way.
