Snowdrop growing sequence, photo 2

Week 2 of my documentation of a clump of Snowdrops growing in a garden in Hatherton near Nantwich in southern Cheshire, England.

A week after the first photo was taken and the Snowdrops are starting to show the beginnings of the white flowers that give the plant its name.

In the Water and On the Water

This is my contribution to Cee’s Black and White Photo Challenge: In or On Water prompt.

I started out considering all the bird species I have photographed on water before thinking of photos of rocks and boulders in water.

Then I remembered the tree stump that appeared at Hurleston Reservoir when the water level dropped and I realised that I could go with in and on water with a single photo.
