Dudmaston Hall Snowdrop Walk 2 – 2012

20 Feb

Having visited Dudmaston last week and seeing the Snowdrops promising a good show, we decided to visit again this week………

The improving weather had brought them on and were just about showing at their best!……

However, last week we’d spoken to another local photographer and she’d metioned the stream below the old mill pond so a slight diversion was in order!…. Chrissy was off through the weeds and the brambles!….. Well worth the effort as it turned out though, because in small clearing by the stream was a carpet of the best Snowdrops we’d ever seen!…….:)

(any of these pics are worth a click to see full size……)

I can’t imagine I’ll better these pics this year, so I reckon that’s the Snowdrops for another 12 months!…… Blue Bells next?……

Happy Monday!……:-)

    How lovely it is to see these blooms already popping up! It’s nature’s way of telling us that Spring is just around the corner!

    Delightful. Seeing the snowdrops in macro is lovely but to see a carpet of them on the forest floor is wonderful too.

    Hi Peggy & welcome, yes Spring is upon us, Can’t wait to spend more time out there without hat gloves and coat!..:)

    thanks Joanna, they seem such posers don’t they?…:))

    Hi Karen, I have to be honest I’m not really a fan of macro, don’t even have a macro lens, most of the close ones are actually taken with a 10 X 20mm wide angle lens or at 400mm and cropped!..;) but as you say when there is a mass of them they do make a picture….:-)
