Spring will come!

I HATE HATE HATE the winter. Its cold and miserable. I'm definitely a spring/summer boy. This Tree reminded me that spring will be here soon enough. If it can make it through the winter and still have such a beautiful, warming color hiding underneath of its white outer skin, then I can surely make it a couple more months too. I can't wait for warm sunny weather and the lush colors of spring!

I hate the cold, but the snow isn't so bad...

What do you mean no color!?

A friend of mine suggested I make this a black and white image. I am always afraid of going in that direction because I love color and I suppose I think black and white photography is more difficult. I feel as though it requires more talent.

I agree that this puddle looks great in black and white; it lost the golden quality that I really liked but still remains its luminosity which is really strong in these shots.
I want to venture more into the realm of Black and White photography, but I really need to go out and shoot some more. Maybe I will once it gets a little warmer; I really hate winter!
