The Last Daffodil

As a bookend to the earlier photo of my first daffodil, I have to add this one. The valliant last bloom of the season (don't you wish they could last longer) in a moment of glory. It was one of those gloomy days last week when the sun peeked through for a moment. When I first began to study photography, I would ask any professional artist as many questions as they could stand! I remember one lady at the Boardwalk Art Festival in Virginia Beach telling me as I turned to leave : "Remember, you are photographing the light!" I think this photo epitomizes that and even though it was a flawed bloom (not perfect in the botanical sense) it leaves me with the feeling these beautiful flowers brought this year as the new Spring light brought them to life.
