Sparkles in the Sun 70/365

70/365

It’s not very often I’m pleased with a shot I’ve taken SOOC (straight out of camera!), but I saw the light on these leaves this morning as I was putting my recycling out and just *had* to take a photo.

Cue me finding a bin bag to kneel on, getting right down close and personal, and then slipping and nearly bashing my camera off the ground. >_<

The things we ‘togs do to get these shots!

    Hehe, I think because I live near Perth, Scotland, some people get mixed up and assume I mean Perth, Australia! 🙂

    It’s beautiful.

    Here in Minneapolis we’re still under somewhere around 300 feet of snow. I may be exaggerating the tiniest of bits…

    That’s so beautiful! If it were me though I probably wouldn’t have even bothered with the bag to kneel on!

    that must be it, although I am following quite a few UK blogs too (not regularly i must admit) – and I always like snow as i grew up with it. Have a great spring !!
