Beautiful little flowers. I eagerly await the first sign of flowers here.

I like their dreamy quality & the hint of dark woodland in the bg. Beautiful.

They really pop in that deeply filtered light. So nice and soft.

Great treatment Lee, it really suits the subject, particlarly with that dark background. Nice one.
Jola Dziubinska23-Mar-2006 18:09
Very well done, especially I like the dark and blurry backgroud. The snowdrops just emerge from the darkness and glow happily.
Yes, they certainly are celebraiting Spring :)
