Another beautiful day today…so I went to the Morton Arboretum to see if anything was blooming.  After scouting out the snowdrops, I found several witch-hazels in bloom.  When they were backlit, the bright yellow flowers were beautiful, contrasted with the dried leaves.  I had my DSLR, a Canon 10D, with me and used my 2X magnifier for the close-ups.

And I stayed to sketch as well which helps me to be in the moment and actually study the flower that I’m inspired to photograph.  Enjoy!
