Photographer: Colleen Powell, Kirkland

Photo taken: March 22, in her back yard

Photographer's description: "I snapped this shot of a tulip emerging from melting snow with a Canon Rebel T3i and a 100 mm macro lens."

Expert says: "The photographer did a great job of using the snow to create a clean background and to focus in on the water droplets. A macro lens can be a great tool to show exquisite detail in everyday things. Macro photography basically magnifies an object to larger than we ordinarily see it. Tip: Try focusing on different points of an object to get different effects."

-- Katie Greene, Seattle Times photo staff
