My new camera and I just went for a short walk in a nearby forest. Light conditions were not the very best for photography, but I gave it a go anyway.
I first walked past a recycling container which had a beautiful, faded blue colour. The buds on some of the trees were in their very first phase but the forest floor looked as dead as in late autumn. Not many signs of spring just yet, dead bits of tree and old dry leaves still hanging as a reminder of last year.
As I walked back some dogs came out of their kennel and saw me off, walking along the inside of a long fence surrounding some riding stables. A group of cheerful spring flowers greeted me as I returned home, telling me it was spring after all.
