Spring Walk at Sunset

It was not particularly warm, just 8 degrees, but the sky was clear, and the sun was about to set, so those glowing sun rays painted trees in intense colours which were reflected in the water. I have cropped some images, sharpened them and made them slightly brighter, but I have not increased the colour at all. I find nature’s own colour saturation quite impressive.

JaneyWan - Thank you. The willow is always a sure sign.

Zuzana - Thank you, and today I can actually hear buds cracking open in the garden, a bit like a dry wheat field in August! :-)
