Where’s our Winter? We got no snow, no ice, no frost, only uninspiring grey and rain.. Here’s a picture I took one year ago, when we had a proper Winter
Wishing you all HAPPY HOLIDAYS!! I’m off to Sweden, see you again in 2014!
Not 100% sure but I think this is a female Common Eggfly butterfly

I’m going on a short break, will be back next week!
Probably the last tulip picture for this season. I took this a couple of weeks ago, and now the petals begin to fall off and the leaves begin to wither away..
A mix of pink spring flowers growing in people’s gardens.. Photos taken from the street, no trespassing 😉

Amsterdam’s blooming with tulips everywhere now! Here’s a picture I took in a busy crossing on my way home from work
I keep Lamprocapnos spectabilis Alba flowers on my balcony, and right now they’re in full bloom. Love spring! 😀
I can’t recall ever seen one of these before, but perhaps that’s due to the fact that I didn’t pay much attention before I started photographing.. I thought it was a kind of tall snowdrop, but after some research I found it’s called a Spring Snowflake. (Or maybe a Summer snowflake, I don’t know how to tell them apart.)

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