Photo of the Week - Other Colors of Spring

March 16, 2015  •  Leave a Comment

It's almost Spring!  Time to go out and start shooting again.  Time to look for the usuals - snowdrops and other spring flowers, trees with buds, returning birds, etc.

Then there are the other things you might come across.  Sights that show up for a brief time and then aee gone.

A couple of years ago, I was walking along 3-mile Drive by the Iris Pond.  Looking over, I saw the runoff from the pond was different than I've usually seen it...a rootbeer color.  Since there wasn't anything else about the scene that was overly interesting to me at the time, I decided to create an image that would highlight the color in an abstract sort of way.  Here are two shots I took that day, showing the color and motion of the runoff.
