Reflections of Spring

Reflections of Spring

On Thursday afternoon the weather was so beautiful that I left my desk and went for a walk with my camera. I was looking around for inspiration when I came across a puddle with daffodils next to it so I decided to see what I could do to photograph the flowers a bit differently. The original puddle is in the photograph below. The top image is my favourite. The wind was blowing which caused ripples across the puddle, playing havoc with my focus but converting the image in a great effect which looks like a painting. The photo below the original puddle was much clearer as I managed to focus on the puddle without the wind blowing and, finally, a photo of two of the daffodils which isn’t puddle-related! 


If you are on Instagram, then I would love you to join my linky, InstaLinkLove. It is open until Sunday evening at 9.30pm (probably one of the easiest linkys out there!).

    Great shots although I couldn’t quite work out what I was looking at at first! Lovely to see all these flashes of colour coming through now.

    The first photo is great even though I like them all.

    I love that top one. It’s amazing how many different views you can see from just one set of flowers

    So pretty. Love the way the change in focus and the wind changed the effect – the first one does look like a painting. I love the clear reflections in the third one.

    Wow, those reflections are amazing! I often try to capture reflections in puddles, but they usually turn out a bit rubbish to say the least!

    Hi Victoria, the top image is my favorite too, it’s a very clever photo. Even before I read your post I thought it looked like daffodils being buffeted by a visible wind. I don’t blame you for leaving your desk, it looks lie a glorious spring day.

    Brilliant puddle reflections Victoria… a great idea and a beautiful effect. Have a great Sunday

    Ooh, I love the idea of taking the photo using the puddle. A great creative variation on a common spring-time shot.

    Love the reflections on the puddle! Great shot! My mummy hasn’t really been outside much in March to enjoy the daffodils and the sunshine 🙁 #MySundayPhoto x
