Spring – Daffodils!!

This looks likely to be the most christmas-like Easter here in England this year. Snowfall this week and more expected over the Easter weekend make it hard to believe that spring is actually here. These daffodils from my garden are proof that, whilst we may not think of spring, the plants have certainly made up their minds.

Closer still. External SB600 flash under-lit. 1/160, f/14, ISO200. Sharpened with NIK Software.

All these pictures taken outside at dusk. The black background in the photographs are a result of using an external flash combined with a high aperture setting. Final black corrections in Adobe LightRoom applied to create a fully dark background.

  1. Could we have a shot of a field where thousands of daffodils (ten thousand to be precise) are doing their sprightly dance? Never saw such a pic
