Spring is fleeting rather quickly this year. With unseasonably warm temperatures this week finishing with a hard and heavy rain today, the trees are quickly transitioning from their muted pastels to green.
Reminding me that life is fleeting as well. That each moment of each day is precious and that all the little treasures that cross our path should be appreciated.
On my drive back from the horse barn, the route takes me through windy country style roads. Each mid-day, I’ve been admiring several outstanding spring blooming trees wishing that it was later in the day for better light.
I remembered how fortunate I was to be able to photograph many days during the winter due to the gray skies. Natures natural diffuser, that quickly disappears with the sun’s bright rays.
After the rain today, the drive home was under cloud cover, allowing me to capture these trees without bright harsh light. Very little were done to these images. Just a little exposure adjustment and some contrast in Lightroom 4.
So happy I was able to enjoy these as I’m on a week-long road trip next week and by the time I get back, they will be flowerless. Click on any image for the slideshow. Hope you have a wonderful spring weekend! Bella
Every day has been so short,
every hour so fleeting,
every minute so filled
with the life I love that
time for me has fled on too swift a wing.
