Spring Snow

One morning last week I awoke to a light snowfall. My lady called from work to tell me I might want to take my camera with me when I went to work. So when CoFlo and I got to the office (carpooled that day), I headed into the park that borders our building before heading into the office. Here are a few images from that morning.

I was hoping to catch some riders coming through the park on their morning commute into work but they were few and far between. So while waiting for someone to come along I grabbed this droplet on a branch. I've always enjoyed turning foreground and background items into shapes that work well in a composition. Or at least they work well in my opinion!

Eventually 'new-guy' Matt came along. He just started a few days before so it was nice to see him rolling through Hyland park.

It took about 30 minutes till the next batch of riders came through. I did get something that I like a lot during that wait but I'm keeping that one to myself for now! I'm not sure who all was in this group but I know one of them was Joe Meiser who helps develop our product. Joe shouted out a hello as he went by.

Eventually I figured I better go fire up the computer so I headed back in. I liked how even this leafless tree created a green spot beneath it.

By the time CoFlo and I headed home later that afternoon none of this cold white stuff remained. In fact, if you hadn't seen it that morning you'd never have known that it happened. Since then we've had flurries again twice, but nothing that left us any accumulation.Frankly, that's fine with me.

I'm a guy that loves winter but I've had the sudden realization this year that we are about the cram our other three seasons into about 6 months. Right now that seems a bit too quick.

I love being outside. I prefer to ride on dirt. Or snow. If I was born a hundred years earlier I might have been a polar explorer. There's a great natural world out there to see, smell, taste, listen to, and experience. Life slows down out there and the distractions we've created will disappear if you let them. Give me a backpack and let me go.

But everyone know that your seasons are like Northern Michigan’s; winter and black fly ;)
