Daffodil 2015 #1

Every spring I try to take pictures of Daffoldils, which to me are the surest sign yet that the cold, wet and miserable winters are truly behind us and a (ever hopeful) good summer is to follow. The following photo was shot in daylight using a flash and high aperture to achieve a black background and enough depth of field to cover the whole flower!

This dream-like scene seen at the National Trust Anglesey Abbey property using an iPhone. To me, everything in here symbolises spring. Daffodils, Hyacinths, Cherry Blossoms and the brilliant hues of a Japanese maple tree.
