Signs of Spring

Signs of Spring

Signs of Spring are appearing everywhere. From the lambs frolicking in the fields to
the flowers pushing their way through last year's foliage in the flowerbeds, Spring
is definitely in the air. Although I still have to scrap the ice of the car in the mornings
the days are bright and sunny with a hint of warm.
This was one of those shots I had somehow missed last year and have been biding
my time to take this year. I had hoped for dabbled sunlight but the sun disappeared
behind some billowing white and grey clouds as I was passing the old cottages in
Ballymascanlon Village at lunchtime.

Still, the light was soft enough to enhance the greens! Beautiful spring scene! V

Well done! Our snow drops appeared very early but then were buried by my last week's snow storm.

I think the indirect light works very well here! Leaves a lot of detail to be seen (instead of hidden in high contrast). Beautiful!

Light disappearing on you; oh yeah, been there, done that. But I don't think that you lost as a result; the solid, deep green offset by the pure white of the flowers (surrounded by the rich earthy tones of the rocks and the leaves on the ground) is what defines this one. Dappled light might not have *spoilt* the effect, but it would have been a distinctly different image. Nice DOF here as well, obviously.
