The Elemental Easter Egg

The Elemental Easter Egg
I have always loved the simple beauty of an egg; nature's version of minimalistic art.

Eggs have always been considered a representation of new life. The reason why Easter and eggs are so closely linked was probably due to eggs being forbidden during Lent. During the strict Lenten fast of forty days no eggs were eaten. It was during Easter that the consumption of eggs resumed after the strict Lenten fast. Eggs were thus a mainstay of Easter meals, and a prized Easter gift for children and servants. Read more at www.theholidayspot.com/easter/history/icons/easter_egg.htm#G52lq0lsVuGlrqWJ.99

Happy Easter to all my ipernity friends! :-)

Great shot Val - I had never realised how difficult it was to take a picture of an egg!

Thanks so much, Paul! I know all too well how difficult it is to photograph eggs. It is only thanks to my full spectrum light that I could take this one the way I envisioned it. ;-)
