[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Description: The first flowers of spring and the last snow of winter. At this moment both of them are just in balance.

Technical aspects: A pale source of sunlight played with the colors. In my house the tea was ready, outside in the garden my first flowers were ready for some nice photos. Nature was calling!

Postprocessing: PhotoShop, cropped until I had a row of three, finaly some L, CB and a bit USM.

Conditions: sunny day

My Goal: Capture the balance of seasons in nature. Don't they look nice? Pure beauty of nature around us.

How beautiful. I always like when spring comes like that and it's nice to be reminded it now when winter is coming and spring seems so far. Very nice shot, I also like the cropping - these three flowers show the spring's strength well. Thanks for sharing this excellent shot.

Here, in Quebec, we live the strenth on Winter.
Well seen, Richard.
An excellent work: picture and note (but without the name of the flower).

Such courageous flowers ! Here in Alsace, the winter has lingered on and on, and srping had to force his way like on your photo. Nice title, nice PoV.
Thanks for sharing.
