First signs Of Colour (Helios 44M-4 Vintage lens)

Some crocuses in our garden. It is nice to see some colour after the grey days of winter.

Shot about f4/f5 with a vintage 58mm f2 Helios 44M-4 lens. The lens is Russian , built at the KMZ factory in 1984

Ooh , they do look bright and cheerful Phil !

@happypat thanks Pat, it is an old lens attached to my modern Sony A6000, the lens is renowned for being sharp with lovely bokeh

Fav. Amazing clarity - well done to the photographer and to the lens. Beautiful colours. The sun is already too bright for photography here.
