This search actually began weeks ago, when I first read the list of challenges. Those of you who have been following me for a while know that I love the play of light and shadow. These are a few shots, some taken in recent weeks, some taken yesterday in my quest for the shot. A couple were taken for the flowers.
We wandered off the footpath to walk the perimeter of the field. It was tough-going but it was a good work-out and the way the sun played on the freshly turned soil from this angle caught me.
I had turned because I was waiting for another dog-walker who was coming up behind. This is what I saw.
When I saw this, the shadows appeared as lace on the grass-tufted pasture. I never did quite get it right.
Today is Mothering Sunday here in the UK. I took these yesterday. I call them Kamikazi Daffs and they have delighted me from the first time I saw them four years ago. Daffodils that appear on grassy verges, on traffic islands, hedgerows and sometimes in the centre of a field.
To my Mum with all my love, and to all the Moms out there, a very Happy Mothering Sunday.
