They don’t last long!
I got a chance this week to snap some cherry blossoms with a blue sky background, so grabbed it while I could. It won’t be long before they’re all gone, and some trees are past their peak already. While I was typing the title I wrote “Cheery Blossoms” by mistake, and considered leaving it as was!
Its always a bit of grey area deciding when Spring has arrived, but I’ve seen enough signs over the last week or so to satisfy me that the conditions have been met.
The calves and lambs are in the fields.
The blossoms are on the cherry trees.
And, the bluebells have started appearing on the woodland floors.
Signs of a new season always make it easy to get out and take photographs.
Another indication of spring – daffodils in bloom.
A sure sign of spring when you see lambs in the fields.
The last few days have seen the first real signs of Spring in my neck of the woods, which always seems to give me a little boost. This morning, on the way to work, I couldn’t resist stopping to attempt to capture the morning light and misty conditions, just outside the village of Clady in Co. Tyrone.
Early morning mist through beech trees, with scots pine in the middle distance. Both species always seem very photogenic.
More beech trees, on the banks of the River Finn, with Croaghan Hill as a backdrop.
