About this Gallery

With my new macro lens and a gorgeous spring day I went out to capture a close up view of spring flowers bursting with colour.

Having just moved back to Canada from Singapore, I can't quite describe how incredible it was to experience a North American spring again. In addition to plants bursting to life, the days get longer and there is a feeling of hopefulness in the air.
