First Signs of Spring

It was a beautiful, although a very cold day on Monday. I was off work so decided to go to Golden Acre park to see if I can capture early traces of upcoming spring. We must have had a long and harsh winter as there were no crocuses in sight yet but there were quite a few clusters of lovely delicate snowdrops. Also I was pleasantly surprised to come across this tree already in bloom. It must be the very earliest blossoming tree of all. It had a very grassy smell around it and I was fascinated by its unusual branches. I was looking for a nice branch on which I could get an angle with snowdrops in the background. It was not easy but in the end I got a shot I wanted.  I gave the images dreamy post processing treatment which I thought went well with a sense of early spring awakening.

  2. I ovdje je jako hladno, malo iznad nule, a ovo je bilo jedno jedino drvo u ogromnom parku u kojem se nista drugo ne moze vidjeti osim blata i jos debelo ogoljelih grana.

  4. Nadam se da ce uskoro zatopliti i niknuti safrani i sunovrati. Jedva cekam....stvarno mi je dosta zime koja kao da je svake godine sve duza i ljuca. I nadam se da ce kod vas brzo okopniti taj snijeg.
    Pozzz i tebi,
    Vesna
