This cheery gift basket of bulbs from a colleague turned out to be particularly photogenic. Apparently, they all got the memo to come on out at the same time. That daffodil is quite striking and only partially shy as it catches the light from the side. lol
Obviously - I am ECSTATIC that spring has finally arrived here in good old Minnesota. Either that or I need to get out more. . .
Happy 420 to those who get it. :-)

Beautiful! What an amazing talent you've cultivated with your photography. It has been amazing to (how can I resist) "blossom" over the last few years. Thanks for sharing.

What a great gift doubly so as you get the chance to take photos.

Beautiful and striking colors and lighting effects in this stellar composition, Jodie! As for the departure of Winter your way, we really never had one this season in Southern California. Moderate temperatures and a paucity of rain is all we received.

I've spoken of your light in the past, and this is a fine example of it: It's powerful but soft, all-present but subtle, it has the feeling of silk as much as of light, and it moves with great ease across the image. This must be seen zoomed to get the impact (zoom's a must): It's an in medias res shot which doesn't fall pray, to my eyes, to the problems with such shots (where, because one starts 'in the middle of things," one loses any focus from the start). This, with all its randomness, holds together beautifully for me, in the shooting verticals throughout, in the caressing light (it breaks through at top beautifully), in the way the pinkish petals---in the back-right---curl around one of the sheaths, in the way the bluish bulbs in front follow in line with the stalks, and in the way the daffodil pokes through like a ray of sunlight. But the biggest thing, still, is that light: Can't put the words to it, though you've done it in image after image (I've spoken of it in your theatrical images too.) Here it's just this overall 'gown'. Quiet & exuberant, simple as could be but graced with a light from within, subtle but beauteous, and another of your presentations of something inward out of something outward. Very glowing piece.
