The First of Spring by catch---22 The First of Spring by catch---22
There's A Cloud
There's A Cloud
A Blue Sky Darkening
That Veils The Light Of The Sun
And Foretells The Rain
But There's A Bird
There Are Birds
And Some Are Singing

To Greet Every New Day That May Come
Like The First Of Spring...

isn't it crazy what beauty can be seen when a fence goes down?

oh it was not as pastoral as it seems... rain was coming in and out and this is one of those half scary rural areas where you don't stay in one spot too long or the locals fuck with you.

I should never look at photos on my laptop...it doesn't do them justice.
The colors are lovely in this...even with the cloudy day. :)

Beautiful colour capture Dennis, Spring has sprung for sure, ...never seen anything like them,
if I didn't know better I would of said it was a infared but even they don't come close to these lovely colours.
and love that sky, sets it all off wonderfully :love:

a crazy brief moment of low contrast lighting with the polarizer makes for nice pop in the reds and blues.
