I look forward to spring each year because I really do not like winter. Here at home I’m only seeing the slightest promise of spring, so each March I head to Longwood Gardens to kick off the spring photo season. The star attraction at Longwood is the Himalayan Blue Poppies. This year we were a little early, or perhaps the poppies were a little late, and the display area was fairly small and quite crowded.
This year we had a group of 20 or so photographers from Road Runner Photography Tours Meetup join us so I found other flowers to shoot, like the one pictured above.
I used the Lensbaby Composer Pro with the Double Glass Optic to get the shot.
