Sandra Bartocha - Glowing in the Spring


Another one … of my favourite spring flowers. :)
Liverleafs are so delicate and beautiful … and although I’ve photographed them every year I never get tired of them. It’s the best thing in the year to stroll around the spring forest … the first warm rays of sun on the forest floor and being surrounded by these tiny purple wonders of nature …

Location: Rügen, Germany

    I love the warm colour of the background and the cold purple of the flower. I also like the mysterious dark bit on the left. The bokeh is part of your signature style and I like it a lot. Noise has been well handled too.

    Since a couple of years I'm quiete inspired by your very special style - but still far from your mastership.

    It is extremely hard to make an image where wildlife appears as beautiful as it is in nature ... but you do it every time! Thank you for sharing :)
