Dandelion of old

PaardenbloemOne of the topics I had wanted to get into this spring was dandelions (Taraxacum officinale, paardenbloem). Often when on my bike getting to work I saw these common flowers glistening in the early morning. Mornings came, mornings went. With our daughter almost entering our lives I however never came to get out.

So rather than making a new picture I searched trough my files of old (this image was taken back in 2004! ) for a picture of a dandelion, only to do some more post-processing on. Wow, the change was dramatic, from the yeah, ok, kind of dull picture of the dandelion came this picture that has strength and sparkle that attracted me all these mornings. What a bit of searching in one’s archives can bring a pleasure.
