First Signs of Spring

Looks like we have a few photographers and artists in our midst so here's a place to talk about all photography, art, and related subjects.

First Signs of Spring

Postby Savannah_Alan » Tue 21 Mar 2006 18:13 GMT

Sue recently posted about the first sings of Autumn showing in Australia.
In this hemisphere, we're getting the first signs of Spring.

As usual, I was out with the camera last weekend and really got a sense that this area (I've just moved here) is going to be a wonderfully colourful place when nature "kicks in" for the year.

Ooh, my camera better be ready for a heavy year!

Wow! The colours are amazing, Alan. Good news for Pic of the Week too - we've been filling the slot with some of my older photos recently: Khyber Pass and buzkashi. They're not great photos but we thought the subjects were interesting.

Aren't you glad you've gone digital! Save you a fortune in surroundings like that. Are those trees aspens?

Yes, I'm so glad I've gone digital. I'm pretty fussy and most often have a less than 1% "keep rate" on my photos. That was always pretty expensive with film :shock: .

I also think that the immediate feedback available with digital can only help to make one a better photographer. It's wonderful. My ex-wife bought me this camera and I've still not stopped thanking her for it! I just seem to get keener and keener every time I use it!

God bless digital, I say. Of course, now the inevitable has happened and I have dust on my sensor which shows itself as out of focus "splotches" on my photos. I've got a special blower and cleaning kit on the way. Meantime, the rubber stamp, or clone tool saves the day!

Alan.

P.S. I have no idea what those trees are, but they're purdy...

Another amazing moment from Alan's eye. The flow of the composition, the balance and saturation of colours are amazing.

You keep up like this, man, and you'll become a Spielberg and we'll come to expect you to outdo yourself everytime... :wink:

Why thank you Mike. :oops:
I went out last weekend to find this spot again and couldn't. Oh well. I guess I'll come across it some day again. It wasn't even that far from home, but I'm buggered if I can remember where it was :roll: .

Yes a very nice picture. We are expecting snow again tomorrow here in Munich. But we do have signs of spring at last.
