Ellipsis Monday Photo Shoot -- Winter Meets Spring

Today is Carly's Ellipsis Monday Photo Shoot #29, sponsored by her blog, Ellipsis. The theme today is Winter Meets Spring. I had a feeling that this theme might come up either here or on the Round Robin Photo Challenge, where I suggested it during a recent roundup of ideas, so when we had a recent snowstorm, I got the following pictures:

It's not easy to see the snowflakes on the above daffodils but there are some on them and on the ground around them.

As extra credit, I want to say that the lovely yellow of daffodils such as I have shown are colors that I love in the springtime. They tell me that even if spring isn't here right at this moment, it's just around the corner.

Another picture, below, is of the snowstorm the other day, in which I took the above picture. I think that the big snowflakes are quite visible.

A question that Carly asked in this post was whether we believed in spirit or ghost photography. I have seen some pretty convincing pictures but I think that they probably result from quirks of lighting or of the camera. In my heart of hearts, I don't really believe in ghosts or spirits that can be photographed.

To go to Carly's blog and see last week's entries, go to the link in the first sentence and they are posted on her blog. This week's blog entries are in the comments. I didn't participate in last week's because the theme was Black and White and my camera doesn't have black and white capacity. If you have a chance to look at them, I'm sure there are wonderful posts, both last week and this week.

Definately looks springish over here, daffadils and snow flurries. Yup that is spring.
Thanks for sharing.

Tee hee. Come to Canada and I'll show you a "snowstorm." ;-)

I love it that daffodils are blooming in the south. That means soon the tips of the leaves will poke their way through the soil. ;-)
