With a slight flu having the better of me for most of the weekend, I for once did not mind to see the weather was greyish. I only went out for a very short photographic stint when I felt a little better than bad. Nothing spectacular, just trying to get something worthwhile out of a bunch of bulbous flowers like Snowdrops (Galanthus nivalis, Sneeuwklokje)  and Spring Snowflakes (Leucojum vernum, Lenteklokje).

Apparently, that is not where my photographic strenght lies, as I usually struggle to take a decent shot of any sort of vegetation. I photographed handheld for a low angle that I could not get from a tripod and tried shooting through other vegetation for a painterly effect.

After an hour or so and with 150 shots on my card, I called it a day. Back home, only one stood up to the (ever higher) standards I impose onto myself. I think I may just need some more practise.
