Photographer eiderdrake tells us about this image: It was taken on Saturday 6th February this year at Benholm Walk on Brotherton Estate near Johnshaven which is in the county of Kincardineshire on the east coast of Scotland. Although they now grow wild and unmanaged here in the woodlands at Benholm, I would imagine they were typically first introduced to the wood many, many years ago when this area of the estate was managed and maintained as a recognised walk from Benholm Bridge to Brotherton Castle.
On this photo’s flickr page, here is a description of the photography: The heavy rains we had first thing yesterday morning had eased by mid day so I went down to Benholm for a few hours to catch up. The overcast, cloudy conditions provided a nice even, shadowless light and the slight drizzle added a lovely sparkle to the lush green shoots of the newly emerged daffodils. I love this time of year and I love working in light like this.
