Looking forward to spring….

After today’s pathetic attempt at a solar eclipse here in London (I think the grey got darker at one point) I’m looking forward to some warmth and some colour.  But despite all that colour, I sometimes think my better “yet another boring flower shots” are often black and white.  For those interested in such things, this was taken with a Pentax K-5 plus the rather maligned SMC DA 18-135 lens – a lens which I always felt performed better than its reputation.  Personally, I think it is a stronger image in black and white – there was too much colour in the bright yellow original (which I have helpfully failed to share!) which completely overwhelmed the whole picture.

As well as looking forward to the Spring I’m also looking forward to the weekend – I’m planning to take out my digital dinosaur for some fun – more on that soon….

Hertfordshire-based, I work for the National Health Service but try and fit in some photography on a regular basis. Not so much during the recent lockdown era, but here's hoping things can only get better in 2021....
