A little in beaux reflets

Streams of light dance in every direction, refracting and reflecting, to illuminate a colourful living planet.

Providing moments to be captured and recorded through the art of photography.

First Colours of Spring

Rich reds and the golden yellow pollens herald in new greens as the Hazelnut blooms.

The 'female flower bud' is no larger than 3mm across and easily missed.

Catching the light in the translucent red crown, you can see the tiny 'dusting' of pollen stuck upon the fruity looking fronds.

The first sign this year, as Spring kicks in to bring new life, with the promise of fresh nuts in Autumn.
