Sunrising behind the daffodils by Barrie Woodward

Sunrising behind the daffodils by 

Spring seems a long way off just now, but you can always wish it would come quicker. These Daffodils were in a banking. The usual view of the daffodil is with the light very much in front or above them. I thought this view looked a little more unusual with the sun rising behind them.
Picture taken in Lancashire NW England.

Sony DSC-HX1

My pictures are taken with a Sony DSC-HX1. What you see is pretty much what comes from the memory card, with maybe a touch of rotation and or cropping.
I probably wouldn’t be taking so many pictures if it weren’t for the camera. It has been worth every penny as it has captured some great memories since I got it in 2009.
Feel free to comment on any of the pictures. I’m all for learning how to improve.

    quite nice perspective. each time i get down to capture such a perspective, i end up very dirty and muddy even. still, sometimes worth it as your nice image proves.

    I have used this wonderful image to kick-off the Flowering Bulbs that Show Sky challenge
    Please feel free to use this image or any other image in the challenge when it opens for entries.

  • Thanks for the comment! I shall use the image in the challenge, see how it goes. It was one of my favourites from that day. It was only when I had crouched down to look up at them that I realised that it seemed quite an unusual view point and I liked the way the sun behind gave a totally different cast of yellow to them.

    Lovely photo of light through the petals, and I love the unique perspective. Earns my vote in the current challenge—good luck to you! (fav)

  • Thanks very much. These were actually growing in a banking by the side of a farm track and so I mangaed to get this angle without getting right down on to the damp cold (It was a cold day) floor
