I heart spring

Heart of spring

This splendid image could be an easy snapshot to miss as I breezed by the hedgerow, but the flash of colour at the periphery of my vision flagged my attention. I have a sub-programme always running in my mind when I’m out and about called interesting things to photograph.

It’s a handy technique – noticing odd things, or seeing ordinary items cast differently in spectacular light.

On some days it’s that necessary reminder that if you search for it you will always find beauty.
