crocus, south shields

First signs of spring?

King George Road, South Shields, grey morning but the temperatures are starting to improve. After a couple of weeks of harsh frosts we can look forward to balmy temperatures in the range of five to nine Celsius each day!

I’m not sure if this batch of crocus is showing it’s head a little early this year or if this the normal time for them to appear, it feels a little early.

Camera details; Pentax K100D, 28mm lens, 1/60 second, f22, iso 200, mini tripod.

  2. Hope the weather keeps on warming up. These crocus sure look like they are welcoming springtime.
