It’s been cold, wet, and windy the past couple of weeks, But we had a couple of breaks over the weekend so Carla and I ambled round the neighborhood in search of spring. I had seen a couple of blossoming trees so thought I’d take my Canon Powershot S100 along. It’s perfect for this type of adventure. Small enough not to be a nuisance but still with plenty of quality.
We went out walking on both Saturday afternoon and then Sunday morning after church. It’s interesting to see what a big difference the light makes. Here a shot from Saturday afternoon with the sun over my left shoulder.
|Saturday afternoon; the fence is in the shade|
Can you tell what I edited out of this picture?
|Sunday morning; a bit more direct sunlight|
Another view of the blossoming trees on Saturday. Can you see what I edited out of this picture?
|Saturday afternoon. Ugly street sign removed|
We went through Hiteon Park which collects a bit of water when the big rains come.
|Not much new growth but I like the reflections|
|Another shot of some reflections in the impromptu pond.|
And an attempt at a close-up. The background is in too much focus.
It was a brisk, sunny walk. Just as we got home it started hailing and raining. Glad we got to enjoy some hints of spring before the gray came back.
