Although it is wonderfully exciting to photograph and highlight vibrant emerging flowers at this time of year, Spring also brings with it March winds and April showers and those all-too-present grey skies.
This was a view from an upstairs window yesterday of the Silver Birch in the garden. It seemed as though we had all four seasons in one day: a little sun; wind; heavy rain; snow; and hail.
The above image is accidental as I was trying to photograph the scene through a raindrop! I failed dismally at achieving this but when I looked at the image later on the computer, I rather liked it. In fact I think it’s a nuisance that the drop is there!
Rain is rather a rare weather event at present – we simply didn’t get very much of it during the last couple of Seasons in Southern England so in many respects it was good to have a day of it.
