Sandra Bartocha - The Spring Generals


Every year there are times when duties call and I’m more stuck in front of the computer than being able to spend time outside photographing. That’s when I try to explore nature in the city … mostly during the evening hours.
This image has been taken in the beautiful Park Sansoussi in Potsdam. In April there are thousands of cowslips blooming across the meadows. I love to play with the last light that’s coming trough trees and hedges … offering the possibility to play around with different compositions.

Location: Potsdam, Germany

    Really really nice color combination. A slightly lack of brightness in the foreground for my taste.

    Oh, stunning again! I have started to look very differently towards photographing plants thanks to Sandra! Keep them coming!
