Snowdrops

I realised a few weeks ago that it was the right¬†time of year to see some¬†snowdrops in all their glory. ¬†However, it was only today that we found time to take a¬†trip to Edinburgh’s Botanic Gardens and thankfully we hadn’t missed them. ¬†These clusters were in a fairly covered woodland area in the gardens, so the light wasn’t great despite the sunshine¬†occasionally¬†appearing from behind the clouds. ¬†A few tweaks in Aperture have, however, quickly brightened up the photos.

As I was having a play in Aperture, I set one of the images to black & white.  I know the joy of snowdrops is usually their beautiful, bold whiteness against the green surround, but there is something that appeals to me in this last photo.
