Let Me Shine

Squared – SQ141

It was almost too windy to go on a hunt for flowers. I had my doubts I would be able to capture good images while the flowers swayed back and forth. I wasn’t particularly excited by the thought of staying inside another day. After the snow we received on Saturday, I wanted to get out and see some color. I didn’t care if I came home empty handed, at least I would get outside.

I started at my favorite location to find the little wildflowers I typically photograph, the Wright Settlement Cemetery. I have been waiting for the grape hyacinth, and the small white, purple and pink little flowers to take hold in the grass. The first to bloom are the daffodils and then a few weeks later I can capture the little ones fighting with the grass. The snow did not frighten them away…

After capturing my images at the cemetery I drove through the city looking for other possibilities. I spotted the tulips along the meridian on Black River Boulevard. I will need to come back when the wind is not as strong, those tall blossoms definitely were dancing to much. I Also spotted some flowering shrubs at Franklyn’s Field. Another possible destination. It appeared as if the city had started planting the flowers but still had more to do. I’ll wait, the colors will be worth it…
