(Day 65) SUNflower

The smell and feel of spring is in the air (I know - a little premature, at least for here, but ...). The temperatures are inching higher daily and the sun worked hard today to clean up the most recent snowstorm. We're starting to see patches of grass again. The days will soon be here when we will enjoy blooms out in the garden. To appease my desire for those warmer temperatures and the sunshine that will bring those blooms, I post today's photo. Hope you enjoy it too!

@Raspashoj - thank you (sometimes inspiration strikes late at night!)

@anonymous - I agree!

@M.Hassan - thank you; yes - I used a mini-lite for a little background lighting. I'm honoured that you chose this as your followers' shot of the day - thank you!

You're welcome, but I think you're the one that made it look special. So, the thanks goes back to you.

Another beautiful shot Rick, wonderful lighting!

Rick said...

@darlin - I had an idea in mind when I started and I played around until I got this result - sometimes one thing leads to another. Thank you.
