It’s about time!
Check out how the willow catkin first opens on the sun-exposed top side. I used my old Fuji Finepix compact digital for this because it has a good macro function.
FRISCO — Slowly, almost grudgingly at first, spring advances with hints of green fuzz at the edge of some meadows and willows budding in the wetlands. Sometimes I have to remind myself that May in the high country is the equivalent of March at lower elevations, and that’s OK. It’s kind of exciting to see all that seasonal action compressed into a single month. Visit our online gallery at Fine Art America for more Summit County landscape and nature images.
Another look at a willow, same spot, different day, different light and an Instagram filter.
A week ago, after a spring rain/snow mix, taken with iPhone.
I think this is the first snow-free shot I’ve taken at this spot since last September.
Sunday sunrise, above freezing temps and the promise of spring in the pastel colors.
