Soft focus snowdrops

On my way back from taking the shop signs photo yesterday, I spotted an area of Heaton Mersey, called Mauldeth Road Conseveration area, which was full of crocuses and snowdrops.  The light on it was fantastic and I decided to that I would go back there today to get some shots of the flowers.

I deliberately waited until the “golden light” of late afternoon and set off.  The light was fantastic exactly what I wanted for the photos…. unfortunately what I hadn’t realised was that at that time of day there are some large trees casting a shadow over the whole area!  D’oh!

I did take a few shots including this ‘soft focus’ snow drop image.
