Spring sunshine even on a wet day. by 

Ranunculus Ficaria, or Lesser celandine found here in Devon woods and grassland in Spring, and is one of the first flowers to open. This flower was captured in a garden where it can be invasive as it seeds so freely.

Canon 350D
ISO 200
1/640 sec
Aperture Value F/1024
Tamron 99mm lens (from an old film camera)
x2 converter
Cropped and tweaked in P.S.2

Celandine comes from the Latin chelidonia, meaning swallow: it was said that the flowers bloomed when the swallows returned and faded when they left

I am not an artist but but have dabbled with wood, clay, and paint over the years andand of course photography. My aim with the camea is to only use photo editing programmes to ‘tweak’ the photo, is a fraction too dark or light, to to crop and occasionally slight sharpen to highlight a particular feature.
RedBubble is inspiring,and when I see the quality of all the art produced by its members I realise how much I have to learn.
