They are everywhere now these fine Crocuses. At the moment there aren't much other subjects around and we are waiting for insects an butterflies which soon will come, I hope. At the moment it seems that snow comes back, at least on altitude.

Dear Anne,
Nice shot! Very delicate and artistic.So nice colors and sharpness.
Lovely composition! Many congrats!TFS
Best wishes,

These harbingers of spring in Europe fill my heart with joy at their delicate beauty, Anne.
The rest of the dead brown vegetation around them makes them look so colourful and refreshing.
Thanks and regards.

Hi Anne,

What a really nice composition and lovely colours,

this picture i am sure has been shot in the wild, (if not you need a good garden Service) just joking,
Lovely soft lighting and congratulations Anne, TFS,

Bonjour Anne,
A fine capture of these Crocus vernus flowers, that really do look as if they are growing in the wild and not in a garden. Technically excellent with fine sharpness and colours and the natural OOF grey BG makes a fine contrast in this pleasing composition.
Any crocuses that grow in the wild in Sweden are garden 'escapes'.
Merci et bonne soirée,

Hi Anne,
another prove of spring. Very nice crocuses. Amazing natural colours. I like an atmosphere of this photo.
Thanks for sharing,

Beautiful photo Anne!! The composition is excellent and the colours are fantastic.

Ciao Anne. Beautiful natural colours and vert good DOF in a lovely compo.

Hello Anne,
A beautiful photo of this splendid sign of spring. The colours contrast very beautiful against the darker BG. Taken from a very good POV. Excellent sharpness and details. Pleasing choice of composition.

This full bag with green points here are well deserved I think! Good evening dear Anne! I love and admire those fantastic colors here: silver and blue/purple /violet ... just help me! Fantastic simplicity and superb point of view indeed! Bravo!

Hello Anne,
A vert fube capture of these Crocuses that must be beautiful seen in the wild in the Alps! I like your composition, the low POV, the lovely colours and fine sharp details. We all look forward to real spring after this long winter!
TFS and best wishes, Ulla

Hello Anne,
Beautiful composition with crocuses. Wonderful, delicate colors.

beautiful clump of crocuses, TFS Ori

Hello Anne
This is a lovely picture, showing the fresh crocus growing between the dry vegtation from last year. I would say an image which detailes very good the victory of spring against the cruel winter!

All the best,

Hi Anne,
The composition is beautiful, while the color contrast is simply awesome. Perfect depth of field. But what's even more important than any technical detail, the photo's very pleasing to look at. It's incredible you have plenty of this plant in the wild (here it's cultivated only). Fantastic scene, both in live and on photo. Delightful capture. Bravo.
Tfs, friendly regards, László

You managed to get the beauty of the flower.
