So here we are again, we can put our snowshoes back in the loft and start looking to warmer days and earlier starts. Yes it is that time of year when colour and warmth starts to return to the landscape, the time when we can start to head out without our sub-zero gloves and thermal layers. The life-giving spring is back in town.
If you are slightly cynical about the joys of spring, I can understand this. It is the time of year when photography forums and stock libraries tend to become overrun with certain white then blue flowers and marauding hordes of photographers twitch round the country to catch the next batch of blooms. We then lie shoulder to shoulder in lines of 10 – 20 waiting for the exact viewpoint that another photographer has just taken. Is there really any point in this? Is there another way? Surely, we have all seen enough bluebell photos by now haven’t we? Surely, there cannot be any new ways to look at bluebells left?
