Spring was fighting to break through for a while there …

I really enjoyed the melting we got for a few days this week. The temperature got pretty high one day, close to +8 I think. I quite enjoy how the water starts to find places to go as it collects.

My neighbor's downspout for the garage.

So there I chose to cut the aperture to f/13 in order to slow the shutter a bit and get a hint of the flow effect on the water. It worked out well.

This next shot really makes me think of spring. As the wet pavement glows in the sun … mmmm.

I popped out to the local mall, and found that the weather was just beautiful. Here, a few carts gather to pass the time while basking in the glory of the coming of the spring …
