Weekly Photo Challenge: Beginning

Cheri’s first post of the year is about  Beginning.  She wants to see what we see through our lenses.

snowdrops in pencil 2As someone who divides the year into seasons I see  the beginning as spring, when nature awakes from the cold of the winter and new life appears. Snowdrops are usually the first flowers to raise their heads above the frozen ground, so it is an obvious choice for me to choose the common snowdrop or Galanthus nivalis.

I have lived in the UK for most of my life, but when young I definitely had wanderlust and even ended up living in South Africa for several years which was a wonderful experience. I now look forward to a long and leisurely retirement doing what I like most - gardening, photography, walking and travelling.

  1. That is an unusual effect Jude, but very pleasant. I like the filled frame, with little to distract in the background.
    As always, Pete. X

    1. Line drawing Pete, with some desaturation. I always find snowdrops quite messy to photograph as they are usually under a tree or hidden in a boring hedgerow. This year I aim to look at my photos in a different way 🙂

    1. Hi bagsia, I just used Photoshop Elements to create a line drawing and reduced the saturation to leave a little of the green tint. Increased the contrast to make the lines stand out more. Thanks for the like 🙂
