  1. Oh, you are back on WP again! I had not seen you in a long time or I have missed your posts. And I have “missed” your posts… (ah, English, the language of similar words with different meanings).

    • Thanks – this was taken in more or less full sun, instead of the diffuse light I usually prefer. Having the light on the background flowers makes a difference…

  2. The yellow color against the green background makes such a gorgeous contrast. Tom, do you use a diffuser to soft the direct light when the sun is there? Thanks!

  3. Tom ~ I really like the diagonals in this composition and, as always, the perfect focus but it is the golden glow that is most striking. I feel this glow speaks to the hope and wonder that is spring!

    • Thanks, Anna – originally I wanted to capture out-of-focus background flower shapes, but when I saw the “glow” of the completely unfocused background flowers, I decided to use it.
