Winter - freezing, bone-chilling, dormant, hushed...

Spring - sap rising, temperate, release, renewal...

My macro photos of springtime wildflowers were clear, colourful, competent.  But I couldn't find a pulse, a heartbeat.  They lacked that "je ne sais quoi" - the life blood, the juices, the essence - the spirit!

So I spent some time with my flowers, teasing and tweaking, cajoling and nurturing, playing with them outside the constraints of photography.  Now I could make my flowers pirouette and twirl, swing and sway, dancing their vibrant dance of rebirth.

Thus were born Springtime Swirls.  Spring - my favourite season of the year which, in the Rockies, lasts from May through August, as it wends its way from the valleys to the Alpine meadows.
