Orange flowers symbolize expansion, growth, and warmth. It is also a color of friendship and community. And the national color of The Netherlands!

pearls-2

In October last year, I posted a picture (pearls) of water drops in grass and Imagery Photography suggested I’d use a smaller aperture to get a greater depth of field. Last night it snowed again, so this morning was perfect for a new attempt. I used aperture 32 and 1.3 seconds exposure time, and because it was a bit dark outside I also changed the light meter to +1 step. The picture is not perfect, but I have to say I like the result much better than last time.

trumpets

I found a clear sign of spring today! Hoop Petticoat daffodils with deep yellow trumpet-shaped flowers brightening up this grey day. Yay!
