Busy day with only a quick chance to catch the daylight for some pictures in our year. So the Daily Shoot also became my 365 picture:
Look for the opportunity to photograph a subject or scene in natural light today. Pay careful attention to the exposure.
After a short sunny spell in the morning, the rest of the day was the same old cloudy and dull. My attempt to hasten the arrival of spring is this pot of daffodils on the still persistent blanket of snow in front of our house. The conifer branches serve to protect the bulbs from possible night frosts, and to make the arrangement a bit fuller.
Today I tried the shutter speed priority, instead of the aperture priority that I seem to have preferred lately. After several shots with different speeds, I ended up choosing this one as the most realistic one, at least in my eyes.
