Spring is here and my excitement grows as the flowers emerge.....Flower ...


By sarahj


It is with a great deal of excitement that I face the coming Spring, the nights are drawing out and it is still light at 5pm. Winter seems to be disappearing as the bulbs poke their heads through the soggy and cold earth, oblivious to the conditions. A good feeling is starting under my ribs, filling my step with a bounce that has been absent for the last few months and I am getting increasingly excited about the months of photo opportunities ahead.

I have a passion for flower photography and Spring heralds the arrival of an abundance of fresh photographic material for me to experiment with.

If you would like to improve your flower photo skills, try the following tips that I have picked up over the years. The tips are now on my site -

Feel free to visit my website to view my flower photos and find other flower information that I have pulled together and provide any feedback that you may have. http:/

Hi Sarah J and welcome to this wonderful blog site.
Use of the camera is not one of my strong points and I always welcome advice.
I hope that you continue to post many more pictures for us to enjoy.

Sadly, Sarah, my camera doesn't have the features you have mentioned. I do try, but it's a case of take a whole lot of photos and delete the worst ones!

Thanks for the pieces of advice I CAN take, though.

Sorry - should have said 'Welcome to GOY' - I have now!
