Photo of the month for March is a shot of a daffodil and a blossom tree.

daffodil in bloomAt the risk of tempting fate, the worst of the winter is (probably) behind us, days are getting longer and the daffodils are appearing, if not in flower yet.
 
This photograph was shot with a 15mm fish eye lens. Fish eye lenses came onto the market in the 1960s. Many photographers experimented with them, with varying results.
 
The extreme distortion of fisheye lenses can be distracting, but in this case it was the only way to get the flower and blossom tree in the same shot.
 
There are some interesting fish eye portraits of The Rolling Stones here or see the work of Randy Scott Slavin, a modern photographer who uses a fish eye to great effect.
