We decided to take a little hike after work last Thursday because I'd heard that the crocus were in bloom on the Huendle Mountain. They were beautiful, although it's the end of their bloom and I'm sure there was a real sea of them a week ago.
Still, it was a lovely hike and I think you can see that it was also a lovely view.
What a lovely landscape well framed including the crocuses in bloom in the meadow in front of the mountains at the back. You've used your smalller aperture to increase the DOF in order to have everything sharp,leading to a firm hand held shot at 1/20s.
More spring feeling in a photo nearly isn't imaginable - balm for soul. This must have been a wonderful hike - with great distant views.
Greetings from springlike Westphalia - though we once again got night frost last night!
yes, when the wild flowers are in evidence it is ever a show. of course in colder places like germany the spring is more powerful and explosive than here, in my region.
I liked the way you included the flowers in FG, permiting us to see how they are and, at same time, to see the landscape where they live ahead.
The sea of crocus in the foreground with its April clouds still kind of uncertain if the sun should shine or if the next rain shower might come, the deep green in some parts while around the crocus part the snow has hardly left and it looks all a little flat and yellowish - this is spring in the mountains. Next thing is that it snows again like yesterday :-) Over Easter we came over crocus but they were all just white. I missed the pink and yellow, wonder where they were hiding - haha.
