First Signs of Spring
It was a beautiful, although a very cold day on Monday. I was off work so decided to go to Golden Acre park to see if I can capture early traces of upcoming spring. We must have had a long and harsh winter as there were no crocuses in sight yet but there were quite a few clusters of lovely delicate snowdrops. Also I was pleasantly surprised to come across this tree already in bloom. It must be the very earliest blossoming tree of all. It had a very grassy smell around it and I was fascinated by its unusual branches. I was looking for a nice branch on which I could get an angle with snowdrops in the background. It was not easy but in the end I got a shot I wanted. I gave the images dreamy post processing treatment which I thought went well with a sense of early spring awakening.
