Spring Colors the Northwest

The first day of spring was a sparkling, clear, cool day here in my part of the Pacific Northwest. I took an early morning walk through the park with a friend.  Everything looked so fresh and ready to pop into the spring season.  Thought I’d just share with you a few of the images that I made yesterday to celebrate the awakening of spring. Hope your first day was just as beautiful.

  1. I loath the word “awesome” but the nature pix are truly lovely worthy of Ansel Adams and John Muir combined. I did not care a whole lot for the women of Northwest.
