It is spring. As I write, the temperature is 79 degrees, and the thermometer is eeking its way to 80. Either temperature will set a new record. Thus, it had to be flowers, once again, for today's blog. With that warmth, the 100 daffodil bulbs I planted last fall are sending green shoots through the soil with great speed, and, as you can see here, many are in bloom. I chose two different times to shoot these "ice follies" daffodils, the first of which rendered the flowers in subdued light or shade.
In-between light or combination light can bring different elements of the flower to the fore. In this case, the cup is in shadow while the outside petals are backlit.
An hour later and a sun angle change pulled the drama from these daffodils, producing in your face sunshine.
