first signs of Spring happening for you John, and here is just the start of a weeny chill in the early morning air to remind us it's Autumn; my most favourite season. I enjoyed the feisty shoot spearing through the earths crust, and the wonderful blossoms and crocus too.
I too really like that first photo. Nice idea in capturing that.
They are all wonderful, John, but the simplicity and unspoken message of the first image win the prize for the day.
They make my heart leap!
Great photography. Most of us try to capture signs of spring like that - not many of us do it so well. You can almost feel that first shoot pushing through the earth - an illustration of life force, for sure. The same force within us must surely recognise and resonate with that.
Great pics. I really like the patterning in the pussy willow shot.
I'm just waiting for all of this to happen :-),Or rather - I have seen crocus.
It's looking very much like spring there!
If that is not spring on its way then I don't know what is.
Uplifting images John!
I've missed your posts for the past few weeks, and find when I get here today, it's just absolutely beautiful!!! Wonderful pictures, John! I love the crocuses!!!
Thanks for all your kind comments.
I love this collection of Spring textures from your part of the world! They feel so optimistic and cheery :^)
For some reason I've had to wait till I arrived back on shore to see this blog - my offshore connection was playing up badly over the last week. I do like the progression of spring flowers that appear and help you through the remains of winter. Even up here in the frozen north it's beginning to look like spring.
Lovely images especially the one of the bulb piercing through the earth.
Thanks for taking the time to comment. I'll try to answer any questions via a comment or e-mail within the next day or two (no hard questions, please!).
