Spring
« on: March 20, 2015, 01:36:58 PM »
When you live in a country like Norway (with 9 months of winter and 3 months of poor sledge conditions) you really appreciate the miracle of spring. One of my favourite times is when the hepatica, this tiny, fragile and delicate flower penetrates the layers of dead leaves and rubble on the forrest floor and raise to the sun.

It would be nice to see some of your spring images.

Which reminds me...once more it is Bug Spray time! I treat my nylon shirts and pants and wool socks with permethrin to ward off ticks (the major health issue) and chiggers (the major P-O'ed issue, especially as they make you itch where the sun don't shine..).

He he, life is hard ...

We were well on our way to a nice spring, when the Weather Gods decided it was time to teach us a lesson. We got 30 inches of snow in one night/morning. Total chaos. And whatever had come out of the ground at that point was totally massacred.

Here's my favorite spring shot from February 8th of this year, which is during our Winter-Spring-Winter-Spring-Winter to Summer period that goes from January to April.  We go from 30F to 90F and back and forth many times until suddenly it's 90F and raining everyday.  I'm not sure we really have seasons, just hot, less hot, and cool days.

This is a pair of Spring Snowflake(s), a tiny flower the size of a small berry, and one of my favorite subjects.  Taken at 1:1 with 5DIII+180 macro @ f/8, 1/30s, ISO 400 +1EV:

I dont know about spring. It went from a comfortable period that is sometimes referred to as "winter" to summer in a matter of 3 days! I wore a sleeveless sweater on just one day this "winter".

Today the high is a pleasant 34C (94F) with a low of 21C (69F). The birds are chirping, the flowers are blooming, the butterflies and bees are back. I guess technically it is spring :)

For me, spring comes when the snow melts, the creek floods, and over a one week period everything explodes into green.

These shots are from a week apart last April.

Lovely picture.

OK you win. I believe in spring. I also believe that the major element in spring is Fe.  :P :P :P :P :P

Hmmmmm, I don't know about snow, but I think your camera is suffering from BCTMP.
