Tim's One Photograph a Day

Snowdrops at the Bumble Hole Nature Reserve.



Carpet of white announcing Spring.

Of course, being in a Nature Reserve, it would be wrong not to photograph something that captures the atmosphere. OK, maybe I haven’t captured any shots of wildlife – no exotic birds or animals. But, of course, plants do come into this category – even if they are common or garden ones (if you’ll pardon the pun). Last spring, we were here a bit later in the year and there were loads of daffodils. However, we were delighted to see plenty of snowdrops coming up.

There were several patches around. I chose this collection under some trees, just catching the early morning sun. I have deliberately used a very fast shutter speed to freeze any movement in the gentle breeze. A very wide aperture minimises the depth of field focusing in on the line across the middle of the shot.
