Last week was a bit of a slump on posting, as I started the week on the road to attend New Hire Orientation at headquarters of the company I just joined; it took me most of the week to get my energy, and some of my inspiration, back, as I had spent the prior three weeks working my tail off to get everything finished and my previous job and exhausted myself.
So now it’s time to revitalize and look toward the beauty that will soon return..
These cute little snowbells comes from the same day of shooting as yesterday’s post Spring Into Saturday at Tower Hill Botanic Garden. Whereas yesterday’s post was taken indoors, the temperatures on that March day were pretty comfortable, so I checked what might be growing outside (in northern Massachusetts it’s usually not much).
This is where I found these pretty snowbells that had just popped up within the previous couple of days. Getting down low, they provide a nice little grouping.
I think that I might go find some more of these beauties on this fine Easter Sunday.
Shot with a Canon EOS 5D Mk II using an EF 24-105mm f/4 L lens at 98mm. Exposure settings were 1/200 second at f/9 and 400 ISO. As the focal distance was rather short, the depth of field becomes nice and shallow for this image.
