I stepped into a field of Spring Flowers in West Hartford, CT at the Elizabeth Park Greenhouse Flower show in March. I was overcome and intoxicated by the scent, the colors and the beauty. This is what I saw. Enjoy.
The intention behind these photographs of Spring Flowers, were to capture images that reflected the feeling I had upon entering the Elizabeth Park Greenhouse in West Hartford a couple of weeks ago in March. I guess it was a long winter. Viewing the wash of color and intense aroma of these tulips took my breath away. I just stood there breathing in and looking at the array of colors and the variety in size and shape.
Once I returned to earth, I decided a macro lens would give me the ‘feeling’ of dreamy, intoxication that I experienced being in the presence of these gorgeous blooms. Therefore, I used a very shallow field of focus, that is, a large aperture on the camera settings like f2-f4. I wanted a wisp of focus, no details needed, but just enough to be drawn in my the lure of these beauties.
If you love spring flowers, make sure you put it in your calendar for next March, to get yourself to the Elizabeth Park Greenhouses for the Spring Flower Show . Check their website because the flowers may bloom earlier or later depending on our weather. This year they bloomed early and I almost missed it – I luckily got myself there on the last day!

Enjoy your spring as the colors and blossoms emerge. Kim.
