Spring Has Sprung

April 16, 2017  •  Leave a Comment

All nature photographers love the coming of spring. It's tough getting nature shots - trees, flowers, wildlife, etc. - in the dead of winter.

But things have warmed up, where I live anyway. So it's time to post some springtime shots.

The irony here is that the images below are actually a couple years old. I'm a bit behind in processing my travel photos from the past several years, as you may have noticed if you're a regular reader of mine. (And if you are, thanks for reading. This blog has been less active than usual lately.)

So, as I said, these are older shots. But they still call to mind Spring and the fact that it has, you know, sprung.

They're all flower shots. The first flowers are little white thingies with a bright yellow center:

Next, some red thingamajigs:

Next we have some white whatchamacallits:

Finally, my favorite, a yellow thingamabob that sort of looks like a goldenrod, but I have no idea if that's what it is:

I wish I could accurately identify each of these, but I can't. I have a good amount of experience photographing flowers and nature, but my knowledge of what I'm shooting is very limited. (There are apps for that, but they don't always work.)

I was able to get a clean, green, blurry background for all of these, which really makes the flower pop.

All of these images are from the garden of the Nathaniel Russell House in Charleston, SC. If you're in Charleston, I recommend a visit there. Here's a link. It's worth it just to see the staircase. (You'll see what I mean when you get there.)

Enjoy spring. And thanks for reading.
