We have an abundance of snowdrops and the display started to bloom this weekend. I snapped this the other day when the sun broke momentarily through the clouds, i am looking forward to taking a few more leisurely shots.

NIKON D60 1/1000 second F/5.6 ISO 800 135 mm (35mm equiv.)

I'm very much an amateur photographer. I live in the hills of the Scottish Borders which has fantastic flora and fauna, as well as wonderful light.
