Photo Challenge - From a Low Angle

I'll confess straight away, I'm not a photographer. Doc H is the photographer in the family and he is quite talented at it. I've characterized him as a Renaissance man; he is incredibly great in a number of areas which exercise both the right and left side of his brain. There are times I feel quite jealous of his abilities and talents, and other times when I feel quite inferior and still other times I feel very proud. Go figure.

However, I did take this little photo all by myself with my little ole IPhone camera and thought it fit this week's photo challenge, "From a Low Angle" at Our Reflection perfectly!

Here it is in the raw. No cropping, no photoshopping, no instagramming, no color or hue saturation, no HDR, no SLR (I throw around these photographic terms I learned from listening to Doc H, just like I can throw around medical terms such as endarterectomy, thrombosis, popliteal, etc...) just the photo as it was taken by me...

I love this photo for a variety of reasons. In my mind, there is no other flower which symbolizes Spring and warmth better than the daffodil (plus gophers and deer won't eat them). I just adore daffodils. I also love the color contrast between the flowers and the sky. It was such a gorgeous day.

If you'd like to enter, it's not too late! There's just over a day hurry!
