I visited the spot where I usually shoot these yesterday morning. I was hoping for some sign of early spring but nothing doing. It was cold, breezy, overcast, and threatening to rain at any moment. I guess you could say it was early April showers.
Pretty soon though.
This is from 2011 and I probably posted it previously. It works much better in black and white which allows for separation from the mossy background. Were I shooting this today I’d do a better job with the highlights which, even after some serious attempts at correction, still are a little blown out, especially at the top of the bud.
