One of my favorite signs of early spring is the blooming of Forsythia bushes. The early, immediate blast of yellow heralds the coming of warmer temperatures and increased outdoor activities. I haven’t really taken any photos of the plant that I really liked until now, though. Going in really close and keeping the depth of field small, I hoped to keep the composition simple and clean. I kept the rest of the bush behind this bloom, so the background would be comprised mostly of shades of yellow.
