Impressions of Early April
Early April in this part of the world (Edmonton, Canada) is a time of transition, Usually most of the winter’s snow has melted (except for some shaded areas in ravines). However it is not unusual for moisture in combination with cooler days to result in new snow falling. Here are some of my abstract photos from this period, that for me capture the feeling of this transitional season without getting caught up in the details.
Camera motion during the exposure distilled the image to it’s color essence although the captured color was subtler than shown here.
At this time of year, the deciduous trees are still a month away from leafing-out. Most of the green in the landscape comes from the spruce and pine trees.
Rivers and creeks have melted significantly to provide magical reflections.
