Early Spring Beauty Popping Outcomments (0) April 14th, 2011 in gallery
The red quince started blooming after a mild spell in the winter weather, and then the late January snow came to make a beautiful landscape in red and white. Except for the dogwood and maples, these photographs were made in our front yard which, being on the west side of our house and the east side of a wide residential street, gets that nice warm noon to late afternoon winter sun. The dogwood and maples are on the east side of the house under a heavy cover of deciduous trees and show their colors later in the spring but still before many spring plants start blooming. All the photographs were taken with a Nikon D2Xs camera on a tripod. The dogwood and quince photographs were made with an 18-70mm telephoto lens whereas the redbud, peony and walking stick were made with a 105mm macro lens.
