It was pretty easy to get carried away with pond’s edge reflection shots.
Spring has its own foliage appeal.
I don’t remember a spring photo of woods has ever looking so much like fall as that second image. Nicely done. The horizontal “wedge” in the first picture grabs our attention.

Spring can be more colorful than folks expect. Here’s something I posted back in 2015.
That wedge is what attracted me to this composition along with the angled trees. I preferred it in context rather than dominating the entire picture as with yesterday’s image.
I remember that closeup, and I see I commented on it at the time.
Yes, I noticed it too. Not that long ago.
Yes, what Steve said. I am just speechless, looking at the first one in particular.
It isn’t what people expect from spring, but check the link I just shared in my reply to Steve.
Yes, the red maples provide color at both ends of the season. They aren’t a dominant tree here, plus it is so flat and they are doing their thing at the top, so we don’t typically see it.
Bliss. . .
Succinct and appreciated.
Wow, these are fantastic! And fascinating. 🙂
Thanks, Lemony. It was lots of fun finding compositions.
The autumnal feel of that second photo is remarkable. What’s especially nice is the clean separation between the colors. It’s almost as though they were planted for effect, although I’m sure they weren’t.
I’m wondering if today’s important anniversary is on your local news. May 15, 1886, was the date of Emily Dickinson’s death. I hear there are events planned, including an annual poetry walk. I think I’d skip the festivities, but it would be fun to go over and see what the gardens look like. I’m sure they would have been spiffed up for the party, and if the restoration’s well along, they might be quite pretty.
No, I haven’t seen anything about the anniversary, but I am sure there was some sort of announcement. I have yet to visit her homestead but maybe I will while the gardens are in bloom.
