Spring at Last - Baby Siebold Viburnum Leaves by 


Oh, it’s so nice to finally get back to shooting in my yard now that spring has truly sprung here in Massachusetts. I took this shot a bit over a week ago and the leaves are much bigger now and the flower buds are emerging. But there’s something so special about the baby leaves – their yellow-green color and the way they catch the late afternoon light that just says spring to me.

Nikon D700 and Nikon 105mm f/2.8 micro lens.

I did a few basic adjustments and finished with Grotto and Madeleine from Leslie Nicole’s French Kiss Textures.

    I so agree with you about the look of tender yellow-green leaves being a welcome sign of spring. These are a delight with their ridged texture brought out with backlight, and the subtle textures of the background set them off beautifully!

  • Thank you so much for your delightful comments, and the fave, Celeste! I do love the leaves at this stage, and it lasts such a short time, which makes it all the more special.
