Spring is in the air!

Finally, spring has arrived! The sun is shining again and the first flowers are starting to appear. So I had to go out and have a look at what flowers I could find already. Unfortunately only some Common Snowdrops were flowering, but this gave me a good opportunity to experiment a little with a small DOF. One of my goals for this spring is to get some nice colourful shots of flowers with just a little detail in focus and the rest blurred. This is my first experiment with that. Not that much colour yet, but I like the one sharp flower in a sea of blurred white and green.

For more experiments, see this months gallery.
