A sign of Spring

I have been struggling for content during lockdown. We have to stay local, so that sort of restricts photo opportunities

Anyway today was quite a mild morning, so we spent it in the garden tidying up, trimming bushes, transplanting some bushes to a new location.

After we had finished I got my Sony A7, with Tamron 28-75mm f2.8 Di III RXD and photographed some of the crocuses in our flower bed

Edited in GIMP. I utilised the tilting screen to get down at eye level with these pretty purples

Great shapes and very pretty colors! Nicely done.

Lovely to see crocuses come up and these look very healthy. I feel the same as you about lockdown. Looks like there may be an end in sight now........

Lovely light, great clarity and vibrant colours, beautiful! The flowers look as if they have lights inside them. Pov's perfect. Nice one, Phil.

I'm OK for ideas but greatly miss the stimulation of being out and about and trying to work in the home environment when you can't dedicate any space to it is challenging too. Still, gotta be alive to complain!

I always love it when the crocuses come out it really is a sign that spring is here

Love this, the light is beautiful. I've found the black and white February theme has really helped me to find new subjects. I'm struggling with the abstract theme though, it's not something I find easy
