I love Spring! It’s a truly magical time of year and here in Utah it’s even more magical in that one day it can be sunny and 70 degrees and literally 24 hours later there’s 8 inches of new snow on the ground… Yep gotta love Spring.

I wasn’t quite sure what to use for the theme of “Planted” but as soon as it started to snow I knew I had to grab a shot of the flower outside because I love how it shows the collision of two seasons with Spring triumphing over Winter as the snow began to melt. I hope you enjoy it as well!

Do you see that one flake upper right that's reflecting the light just right? I love it!  3 shot HDR Handheld 50mm f/1.8 + 36mm extension tube

It was a real quick photo shoot, as soon as the Sun came out it was game over for the snow so I wasn’t able to get those real close up shots of the snowflakes that I would have liked, but shooting wider meant I could include the green of the leaves for some nice color contrast.

I hope you have a great day and thanks so much for stopping by.

Happy Shooting!

Howard
