    Re: Has Spring Sprung????

    Sorry, kind of counter "spring has sprung" but here are a couple from 4 days ago, and then two more from today, and yes that's snow falling today. About a foot on the 31st and another 4-6" today....I am wondering if it will ever sprung here.

    Oh My! Not at all what I have in mind for Spring. I hope Spring comes soon for you there in WY.
    Don't forget about the Gallery. Are your photos there??

    A snow, cold, windy crappy day yesterday, but that isn't stopping the bluebirds from nesting.

    Still not as spring as it could be here. I've only seen one kind of flower so far.

    We have some great images of Spring so far in this thread. Thanks for playing everyone. Here are some that I captured yesterday evening after work. Bees, lilacs, tulips and of course everyone's favorite Spring weed the ever present dandelion.

    It's Not All About Flowers

    I've been meaning to add something to this thread for a while but I've been super busy. Yesterday I took my first photos with the Lenbaby Composer lens and they they would be an appropriate addition here.

    By the way, I think it's good this is in ViewFinder. Spring isn't all about flowers. It's also about getting out in the sun. For me, it's been about switching from the skis to the bike. Last week I was in California for the first bike festival of the year, the Sea Otter Classic. That event always marks the arrival of spring for me.

    My pictures are actually of flowers, though. At this point, I'm still not quite sure what to do with the Lensbaby. But flowers are a sure thing. Kitties out soaking up the sun are a pretty good Lensbaby subject, too

    Re: Has Spring Sprung????

    I have a lensbaby (from a couple of years ago) and most images from it give me a headache.

    It's been too rainy here to get out with my new camera. But the plants are soaking up the rain! Before it started raining there were no flowers in my yard. Now I see fully grown red tulips and my bush is sprouting purple flowers. But I just don't want to get my camera wet ...

    Re: Has Spring Sprung????

    Okay, I got out for a bit yesterday. Here's a couple from that session. I posted the first one in critique as well, but I actually shot it for this thread.

    So glad that so many found signs of Spring to post pics of in this thread. We have had some very nice images here including the few snow shots. Here is my latest signs of Spring photos. Mother Robin on the nest and wild flowers down by the creek.

    Beautiful!

    Those are a couple of beautiful flower photos, Opus! I love the background blur! Did you shoot these with a 50mm?
