A little winter rose in the spring light

Jonathan and I celebrated 10 years of marriage recently.  Traditionally, people give each other things made with tin, or if you're more of a modern sort, you might go with diamonds.  Jonathan decided that for the Bain family, 10 years meant lens.  Way better than tin, and quite a lot better than diamonds in my opinion.

A little celebration of the lens is here.  Sunlight through our bathroom window, with the very last of the hellebores (my favourite flower of all), and the 85mm beauty I have been longing for.  I am so lucky.
