Not feeling too bad about entering this competition early as my camera's likely to be out of action for the rest of the month - it's in for repair. This will hopefully be the last time I mention Beltane and associated wierdness on this forum, but I couldn't let it go without getting a critique of one of the shots. I'm not sure it 100% fits - she looks very stern, but hey, I can't shoot anything else So it's going to have to do. Symbolicly it's on the right lines, the passing of the hard, frigid winter into the soft warming light of summer. I hope the shot pulls it off a little.
