Goodbye to Winter!


I had the same title on a post last year at this time so I guess now it is tradition. In this scene I am reminded how I meant to get out there and photograph the ice more than I actually did. It seemed that every time it snowed the timing was not right or I was committed elsewhere. Adding to the challenge was the record cold temps… the coldest since 1967 they say. It sounds like excuses I know and maybe it is! Now, with the first day of spring this Friday, March 20 I am feeling renewed enthusiasm to get outside with my camera. Welcome spring!

    Yeah Welcome Spring 🙂

  4. It’s amazing how a well placed line and the right color can turn a photograph into something magical. I echo your sentiments about spring… Bring it on!

  5. An absolutely beautiful view. Thanks!

  6. I love the mood and dawn’s color on the ice.

  7. I like the meandering course of that prominent seam in the ice.

  8. Beautiful moments you captured, I loved it. Thank you and also thank you for visiting my blog too. Have a nice Spring, with my love, nia.

  9. Getting out to shoot in the winter seems so much more attractive as we approach better (warmer) weather. I’m getting ready myself for another great shooting season.

  10. Very nice image, one of the best examples of a leading line that I’ve seen. And the transition of color from the cold blue of the frozen lake to the warmer tones of the sky really tell the story of the changing season.
