Dear Friends,

Here in Hungary we used to say this plant, Galanthus sp. ("Snowdrop" in English, "Snowflower" in Hungarian) is the herald of spring, the real sign winter is over and doesn't come back again. Actually this isn't the only perennial flower blooming this time (and to be exact not the very first either), but the most known by people. The others are the not rare Helleborus purpurascens, an endemic Carpathian plant (You can find my photo of it here), and the locally rare Eranthis hiemalis (I've never found it yet).

There are 3 Galanthus species living in our country: G. nivalis (on the pic, not rare), G. elwesii (rare) and G. plicatus (rare). All of them are protected by the laws here.

Although this shot was taken in 2008, I hope You can enjoy the unmistakable spring spirit. Thanks for lookin'.

Hi Laszlo!

I envy you this shot very much! After long night, we've got everything covered with SNOW again... Perfect, spring photo. I like low POV very much with beautifull Snowdrops on foreground and lots of flowers and blue sky on BG. Triumph of spring over winter - sunlight, blue sky and fresh flowers. Great to see these messengers of warmer times. Thanks for bringing us, dwellers of North, hope :-)

Hi My Friend Laszlo,
excellent presentation of the flowers in the exciting presentation of white flowers in well balanced light.
I too like the pattern of the blurred tree trunks in the background. A very well develped scenery which is very clear in the FG and gradually blurry to the BG.
Well composed with good planning.


Hi Laszlo,

Nice springpicture and an good composition.
Beautiful fresh colours.


Bonjour Laszlo,
Trčs belle présentation de ces "perce-neige" dans leur environnement avec une bonne maitrise des hautes lumičres permettant d'apprécier la finesse de leurs détails et la délicatesse de leurs couleurs.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.

Hello Laszlo !
What a cheerful picture - it is shouting SPRING !!! I love the beautiful flowers, the blured forest in the BG, the blue sky, the spring atmosphere, the warmth we can almost feel in the air just by looking at the picture... It's the kaind of photo that brings a ray of light into your day, when it is grey and raining outside. Very well done !

hello Laszlo

with a very good background,splendid photo
best regards
