Spring, You’re Looking Better Every Year

Seriously, though. Spring is more and more endearing to me every year. Yes, the Minnesotan winter takes a toll even on this self-proclaimed lover of ice. Obviously, there is the warm relief spring brings. But I’ve really seen my appreciation grow with greater attention to detail, slowing down and scouting for spring scenes.

Photography has really endeared spring to my heart. It’s taken that focus I apply to other photographic subjects or seasons applied to spring that’s enabled me to slow and see the beauty.

It was only last year that I started to see spring’s colors as a reflection of autumn’s colors. The diversity in glowing greens and yellows and other budding colors is very similar to the chorus of autumn color. This, too, has really captivated me this year in particular, especially since this time frame is limited before the solid summer greens take over.

I think another reason I am growing more fond of springtime is its emergence reminds me of a rising sun. I shoot in the morning hours much more than evening hours because I love that day and light are beginning, rather than ending. I think spring has a similar jolt of refreshment when I capture it. I’m seeing growth, new, freshness, color, light and more rather than a period of time’s closing door as darkness settles in the evening, for example.

How are you enjoying spring this 2020?

  1. I still love winter but I find myself craving the warmth of spring after a long period of snow and ice, ESPECIALLY if there’s been a lot of shoveling and plowing during that time. Lol. Enjoying spring this year with my camera. Not a lot changed with the COVID-19 as I mainly shoot by myself other than more often shooting closer to home.

    1. Yeah shoveling and plowing can help welcome spring time too. Now get raking, planting and mowing! Haha. But it’s refreshing. I’m fortunate to work around some gardens who those are my subjects when not shooting at 5am now
