Late winter and early Spring is a quiet time for weddings, so I usually make the most of the off-season to explore my own family a little, through the lens.
OK, so she’s not one of my family, but she was awfully cute!
Our early Spring walk route took in a series of local footpaths which we often frequent with our two mutts. Everything is just beginning to look a little greener right now, and the air tastes different somehow. Fresher.
As usual, we stopped for a few snaps. It’s just one of those occupational hazards. The rhododendrons in this case helped out.
Spring is just beginning to show its face. Little buds are everywhere.
Somehow the buds seem less reluctant to be photographed than my kiddos.
And not everything is green, I discovered. The brazen cerise of these new conifer buds were so eye-catching. If you look closely you can find things that you have never even noticed before.
I think this may have been just one too many photos on this occasion.
