Backyard Late-Winter Nature in New Jersey. Spring is Near.

As Promised, Snow Drops (and more Purple Crocuses). This morning the sun was out and lighting up the flowers across the street. Snow Drops, a field of Snow Drops, Snow Drops in a field of Purple Crocuses, a field of Purple Crocuses, etc. Spring is Coming!

  1. Thanks, I do like what I am able to get with the Leica digital point and shoot cameras. Because of this, I just upgraded to a Leica X1. Will post images soon. I haven’t given up on my Nikon bodies and lenses, but having something light weight that gives great quality I will use.
