Hi TL Friends,

It’s interesting that others are experiencing sub-zero temperatures with lots & lots of snow and others (like here) are having warm days with lots & lots of sunshine! Considering we should be havening the “equivalent” season in the same hemi-sphere. The global weather change isn’t going to make things better for us as we move into the 21st Century.
So, let’s at least enjoy the vibrant colours of Spring today!

Hello Constantinos,
So you are lucky to already be in the start of spring. Here we just got 35cm of snow last friday, it will be snowing today, then for the rest of the week it will vary between -14c during daytime to -25c at night. But at least with your photo I can enjoy the warm feeling of the spring.

P.S How is your leg doing, are you back doing everythiing?


Hi Constantinos
Very nice exposure colours but I am thinking global warm...big danger .100 litre oil=1 cup water near future :-(

Yes, also in the Rhine-Main are of Germany the spring starts.
Nice POV and good colours too.

Hi Constantine,

A spring at its best, lovely colors, excellent lighting, POV and clarity.

We too are experience the warmer weather here.

I love these blossoms, you have captured them well.
Great colours, POV and lighting. I love the colours of spring.

Hola Constantinos,

Wonderful contrast of pink flowers against the azure sky. Just like a new baby being born - this may be a poor analogy on my part but I really can't wait for spring. Great work my friend. Danilo

"Spring is in the air..."
What a beautiful picture. I love those fruit blossoms and they look so good against the blue sky. And we have to wait another 6 months for oours to appear...

beautiful colors here Constantinos :)
good use of the frame
very nice work :)


Good colour combination

Hi Constantinos, spring is coming wonderful flowers with splendid colors, great light, very well done, ciao Silvio

I know, you came to tease me with these beautiful spring blossoms knowing we are still knee deep in snow. Today -13c! A quick run to the mailbox is all I could master with my thick hat on my head. Lovely capture of the flowers against the blue sky. I will send you some of my blossoms later once they have defrosted.

Hi Constantinos,
I am very much one of the people experiencing the opposite of what you are, but it is always wonderful to see the bright sunlit skies and brilliant blooms full of colour from other parts of the world. Excellent detail in the branches while the flowers look beautiful and delicate.
Cheers, Todd

I can't imagine here with -33 C and there you have spring. When I was in my country, I could see spring in March but here is still winter :(
Beautiful spring shot with nice colors & lighting. Well done.

Hi Con, superb colours with the pink and blue. Well composed and deightful detail. Well done and TFS,

Beautiful pink againts the blue sky here. The branches can make like an abstract picture.


Hello Constantinos,
I'm happy to report we still have some snow here, hehehehe!
Lovely image of spring, about the most typical you can find to depict the season...
Attractive colours and details!

Its sunny here too Costas !... lol

Lovely pov, and colours.. sure is a spring time photo, so it will give the winter people a glimpse of what is to come!..

Thanks for sharing.

Bonsoir, Constantinos,
Ici aussi le prémice du printemps sont partout mais il nous manque le ciel bleu comme il y a chez toi. Déjà un grand privilège, nous ne manquerons pas d'eau cet été, je dis privilège car cela faisait trois années que la sécheresse était installée, et pas d'eau pas de vie.
Alors profites bien des beaux et chauds rayons du soleil pour t'occuper de renforcer ta jambe en continuant un peu de marche tous les jours. Bonne guérison.
Merci de partager ces belles et douces couleurs du printemps.
Amicalement, Corinne

Hi Constantinos,
Great Spring blossoms photo my friend.
We don't have them here yet but very soon:)
Great pov,dof,colors,focus,sharpness,mood,frame and note.TFS

Hello Constantinos.

Well tonight it is -26 Degrees Celcius here in Trois-Rivieres. With the windchill factor , the temperature is down to - 36 Degrees . I guess , we can qualify it chilly (^_^).

We will see these blooming trees here in about 6 to 8 weeks.

Good idea to take this shot against a blue sky . You waited for the perfect day . The contrasts are better this way!
Take care!

Very well presented, Κώστα. Those are not yet in bloom over here, but the trees are starting to grow leaves already. I expect in a fortnight or so it'll be in bloom here.
Nature is way too early this year. I just hope we won't have a big touch of frost this month, or it will all die...
TFS. I love that blue sky!!

Hello Cons, thank you so much for bringing us a glimpse of next spring. It warms me up looking at those beautiful blooms.

Here we hat -38 with the wind factor on monday!!! I am soooo ready for spring now! :D

Very well presented, the pink against the blue sky.
Very sharp and clear.

Very well done! Take care, Yan!

Ps: many thx for your review in "Evergreens in winter". It's really appreciated :)

A song to spring. Good sharpness and details:-)
Bye bye

the colours are beautiful, full of hope and promise... thanx, M, (*_*)
