I got out to take a short walk this afternoon, and of course I brought my camera.

It was a beautiful Spring day, and the wind was creating some stunning whitecaps on the river 1. On my way back from the riverbank I came across these lovely daffodils, and took a few moments to capture the flower pictured in the image below.

Flowers remain a struggle for me to develop well, as their intense colors and/or brilliant white are easy to blow out. I was pleased with the way I was able to recover some details in the white petals, and even bring out the yellow hues in the floral tube 2.

  1. Sadly, I didn’t have enough time to get to the best viewing location to capture them. I got a few shots, but the framing is nothing to write home about. 
  2. I actually looked that up, so that was something I learned today.
