Happy

Finally, I took a daffodil photo that I liked. Daffodils are my favorite spring flower and I wanted to have one in my album. I've been trying for the right shot over the last few days but wasn't pleased until now. The backlighting of this daff and the colorful flowers below makes it an especially sunny and happy image to me. It seems to capture so well the burst of life that is spring.
This has HAPPY written all over it! Just beautiful with the back light, and yes, those little soft bursts of blue violet, pink, green really say bring it on Spring! :-)

The light is just great! Are daffodils actually up and blooming where you are? We’ve got nothing here which is so unusual.

Oh wow, what amazing colours Lisa. I love the colourful background. I feel happy just looking at this shot. Awesome capture.

This just makes me smile all over my face. Daffs are my favourite flower, full stop, not just spring flower, and I'm waiting and waiting to spot the first one here.

Great, happy, happy shot! And lovely bokeh, too :)

How beautiful, makes one smile, love the almost transparency of the petals and the soft blues and pink underneath

@lisabell Daffodils are blooming here. They have started to appear over the last 7-10 days. Such a welcome sight! I hope that the spring flowers hurry up and arrive for you, too!

@Cheesebiscuit Thank you for your comment and fav, CB! I have a favorite flower for every season, but I think if I had to choose just one, it would have to be daffodils, too. :)
