Stop for a moment and look
Today I successfully installed some more programs on the new Windows 8 computer and also resolved the issue with the EOS Utility, which I use to download photos from the Canon DSLR camera. I installed it yesterday from the disc, but it wouldn't work and all the options were greyed out. A bit of Googling led to the solution, which was to install an updated version from Canon. So all is good and I went out for a little walk in the gentle drizzle to photograph the primroses I had spotted yesterday.

Behold, some primroses!

Spring rain on primroses

This photo is simultaneously all wrong with regard to composition and yet I find it somehow pleasing. If it hadn't been raining, I may have lingered and taken more shots, but I was getting damp. You can see the rain droplets on the petals.

Clump of primroses

The appearance of the spring flowers is certainly lifting my spirits after this awful cold, dreary winter.

I'm failing miserable to join you in this lovely 'moment' enterprise. Blame on the revision.

Primroses!!! Exactly what is required. And utterly pleasing. :)

Everything is better with primroses. :)

I'm sure you will spot some moments of enchantment to delight us in due course. I just have 6 more daily photos to find and then this feature will take a break until June. Well, if I happen to spot anything in passing, I will of course post it, but I'm not committing to doing one each day.
