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.

A break from Monochrome Monday as I continue my exploration of lichen growing on trees and boulders around the neighborhood.

I spotted these orange and grey lichens on a tree trunk during a walk last Saturday afternoon.
