Photo of the day: Spring, soon...


Spring, soon..., originally uploaded by The Bacher Family.
On these dreary winter days, one looks for signs of spring wherever one can find them. This photo was taken February 22 in Smallwood Park, here in Eatonville; even now, three weeks later, it's still one of only a few plants that have ventured cautiously and hopefully into bloom. Spring is officially only a week away, though, so I'm hopeful that more will follow.

The lighting was dim for this image, but I set my f-stop carefully to give just enough depth of field to ensure the flower and buds were in sharp focus, while leaving the background splendidly blurred. I love the delicate colors, too.
