Daffodil and Narcissus.

'Tis the season and spring flowering bulbs lead by daffodil and narcissus are springing up everywhere. After their long winter sleep they rise once more from their cold bed beneath the earth. No wonder the English word Daffodil has its origins in the flower of the Ancient Greek underworld, Asphodel ( though by some to have originally been the white narcissus).

 It is so easy to photograph a field of yellow or a bunch in a vase on the table, in fact Spring is a challenge because all this new growth and flowers pull me towards yet more repeating images in my digital library. Enough already! I decided to push daffodils a little, photographically speaking, with the underworld in the back of my mind.
