In the Land of Awakenings [Spring Impressions]

It's a comforting notion that spring returns and comes to bloom every year. Right now we are experiencing the full palate of colors and smells. Out of them a beauty is born. It may not be the same everywhere, but it is there nevertheless. There is nothing quite like nature to provide colors, depth and emotions. 

These shots were taken not far away from our weekend cottage. I love the rich colors that I was able to get because of the weather we are having right now. I deliberately lingered on close-ups, since I wanted to show as much details as possible.

"Everything is blooming most recklessly; if it were voices instead of colors, there would be an unbelievable shrieking into the heart of the night."
~ Rainer Maria Rilke, Letters of Rainer Maria Rilke

  1. Love your narrow depth of focus give a great bokeh background. It is raining here today for the first time, so spring blooms can't be too far away.

  11. Beautiful colors, Mersad! We still had only 36 degrees this morning. Spring is really balky about making an appearance this year.

  15. OUTSTANDING, my friend Mersad! I don't think I will get bored staring at them all day long. They are full of life in a very quiet way.
