I took this picture at a friend’s house in Newport, Wales. This year I missed the tulip blooms in my garden as I was out-of-town over the 2 weeks these bloomed. I have removed all distracting greens from this photo to enhance the glow from the tulip. Shot using a 50mm f1.8 Nikon lens and processed in Lightroom.
The earliest signs of spring in gardens and meadows around Britain are the appearance of these tough dandelions. They might be the scourge of the gardener but they do light up meadows with their bright yellow showy flowers. These dandelions were seen on a footpath along a field near Hinxton, Cambridgeshire.
