Spring Flowers

Well, I'm trying to keep up with my New-Year's resolution and managing to take a few photos - still only when I feel like it, but that's no bad thing really.

I'm also trying to have a fairly quiet Easter weekend, not doing to much for the couple of days I have off other than catching up on the latest Windows Spring Creators Update on my main PC and laptop. Honestly, I'm not sure what all the fuss is about as little seems to change for such a big and complicated process.

Anyway, here are some of the photos I have taken in the garden today. Spring does seem to be finally arriving - my cherry-plum trees are nearly ready to burst into flower and the rest of the fruit trees will not be far behind. I'll try and revisit the garden when they start to open up and get a few blossom photos, but for now we'll have to make do with primroses and narcissus.

All images taken with the usual Pentax K3 and today's lens of choice, the Sigma 50mm 1:2.8 DG Macro. It's far and away the sharpest lens I have, as well as the one that allows these real close-up macro shots to shine.
