Some say spring starts the 1st of March, others maintain it starts the 21st, but according to my own observation, it started this past weekend. No wintercoat, no rain, and lots of sunshine (and even people sunbathing at the beach apparently).
Naturally, I picked up my camera (which I’m ashamed to say was so much ignored lately, that the first time I picked it up, I couldn’t use it because the battery was 100% dead), and went outdoors.
I have a feeling I’ll be posting more regularly again…

Seeing that it’s the 15th already, and my previous post was over 10 days ago, I think we can safely say I’m not doing a 365 this year. I could still do a 350, or a 300, but that’s not quite the same thing. So, I’ll just not give it any name, and just get on with it.
Yesterday it started snowing. First a very thin white dusting in the morning, but in the evening it was a lot more, and I took a few pics out of the window in the middle of the night, just for documentation – not a blog post. Also shot a few seconds of video, to see the movement of the flakes. Pausing the video gave a nice effect to that movement, so I took a screenshot of that. And that made me want to post it:
Maybe this is the first photo of another 365, maybe it isn’t. Haven’t decided yet! :-)
Sometimes you don’t have to go very far to see the beauty of nature and light.
This one was not edited, only cropped. Taken with my iPhone, as I turned into my street returning from the supermarket.
Of course, cropping was essential, here’s what it looked like without the benefit of a zoomlens:
Obviously, the real thing was way better – but maybe it’s good we can’t capture the real thing; we’d stay indoors all day looking at pictures instead of experiencing the fleeting beauty that comes and goes with the seasons.
