Spring Greens

This is my contribution to the Cosmic Photo Challenge: My green world prompt.

Having returned to winter like weather for the past couple of weeks there’s not a lot of signs of spring in this part of Ontario. So here’s some recent greens but not necessarily signs of spring.

As a side note, the first 3 photos were taken on two walks testing a copy of the TTArtisan 35mm f/1.4 lens. Initial impressions are good but I need more time than two short walks to get a feeling for a lens.

Weekly Prompts: Greenery

This is my contribution to the Weekly Prompts Weekend Challenge: Greenery.

When the challenge was posted on Saturday morning we had had 33 hours of snow and it was still snowing. Various roads in the area are closed as I work on this post.

So I decided to look back at last summer and autumn to see if there was any greenery images I had edited for a blog post and then never used. These are all from my walks around the neighborhood with a camera.

Tuesday Photo Challenge – Tomorrow

This is my contribution to the Tuesday Photo Challenge – Tomorrow prompt.

On reading the prompt I decided that whatever the weather I was going to go for a walk around the neighborhood tomorrow.

As it turned out it was sunny but cold with a wind making it feel even colder. I put a short telephoto lens on the camera and went to see what I could find.
