Lots of people have been asking me where I got my header picture from, so I thought I would share the original image. I took this last spring on a sunny, breezy day which created the perfect conditions for flying dandelion seeds. I planted myself for a good hour or so in a field filled with the spindly white flowers and took hundreds of shots of the milk-coloured parachutes. My legs were aching when I finally decided to call it a day but when I looked through my images later, I realised perseverance had paid off. What I love about this picture is how I was able to capture that one transient moment – those spring seeds clinging to a lone blade of grass in the breeze – and freeze its fleeting nature.
