Finally Spring by
I hereby declare the flower season open
When the wood anemones wake up, Spring has arrived for me and can you imagine, it is mid April and I took my first flower image of 2013 !
This afternoon I tried out a different composition, I often look for back-light or color contrast. In this image the fresh grass gave a soft green background and by combining the Anemone with some other flowers I got a nice ‘flower bouquet’.
Last year I noticed that almost all my flower images were shot with my Canon 300mmL lens. So today I took my Sigma 150mm macro lens with a 1.4 extender, a combination I will try to use more often this year.
Happy flower season everybody!

Some feedback :
– This is awesome! What a gorgeous comp & I love the softness!
– Beautiful combination of the anemone with the bed straw (I think that’s what it’s called). Love the bright whites and the stamen details.
– A beautiful spring composition that certainly hits the mark imo – sadly rain and wind over here, so here’s hoping for some of that sunshine.
