Easter Flowers

Easter Sunday calls for Easter Flowers.

My father was a talented Church Organist, my mother sang in the Church Choir and therefore Sundays during my childhood were church-centric days. At Christmas, Easter and Harvest the church was always beautifully decorated.

At Easter there were posies of Primroses on every windowsill; Daffodils and Narcissi and flowers of similar coloration decorated the Aisles. Evergreen foliage added contrast; and for the Chancel, white lilies were the finishing touch.

So today’s post brings those colours and those blooms to you. On a day associated with Resurrection, flowers are a potent symbol of nature’s regeneration.

About LensScaper

Hi - I'm a UK-based photographer who started out 45+ years ago as a lover of landscapes, inspired by my love of outdoor pursuits: skiing, walking and climbing. Now retired, I seldom leave home without a camera and I find images in unexpected places and from different genres. I work on the premise that Photography is Art and that creativity is dependent on the cultivation of 'A Seeing Eye'. I'm not averse to manipulating images to produce derivatives that may sometimes be far removed from the original.

      Many thanks for commenting, Denise. This was an image I had previously dismissed, but on reviewing it recently I realized there was something there – a ‘high key’ effect that was worth working on.
