It is Daffodil Day. You might wonder what exactly does that mean?!

Actually most of my best photos I have taken in bad weather or drizzling rain. It really makes a difference in the colours in nature and the sparkling raindrops sure spruce up everything and make it classy. But hey, I am not in the mood to describe the positive […]
