Crocus at Sunset

Monday 6 April, 2015 | Nikon D5100 | 35 mm f/1.8 | 1/400 sec at f/5.6 | ISO 100

I walked around the parking lot at the office looking for compelling images to capture for my photo of the day project. I found nothing of interest.

But then l came home, stepped out of the car and noticed the evening sunlight glowing off the tiny crocus growing in the front of the house that I knew I had my photo of the day. The crocus is considered a sure sign that spring is here. I am allergic to almost every North American plant, including grass. Despite my seasonal allergies, I love springtime. I can't wait for the trees buds to open, revealing the green hidden inside. I can hear the amphibians calling to each other at night, and it reminds me of the sweet air of the rains forests of the Caribbean.

This is the image for my second day of The 100 Day Project.

NOTE: You may have noticed that I started the 100 Day Project one day early. Why? I wrote on the Day 1 post that my family and I witnessed the beautiful evening light that filtered through the branches of the trees onto the red barn located behind the 1860 House in Skillman. I went back the next evening and was lucky enough to capture what I had seen the day before. I love the resulting image, so I decided to start a bit early.
