early spring.

it is difficult to express how happy I am about this unexpected early arrival of spring: I want to enjoy every minute I can outdoors! I have started to wake up earlier in the morning and it does not feel hard at all when there is so much light. I took these photographs during a morning walk in the neighborhood: the sky and the sea where bright and piercing blue.
early spring - a morning walk:
Nikomat EL - Kodak 400
the trees are still bare but the first leaves will soon start to grow. there is still some ice on the sea but it is getting thinner and smaller day after day. the length of the day today is of 12 hours and 56 minutes.
I wish you a weekend full of sunshine!

  3. The blue skies! I can fully imagine how it must feel. Spring has been here for a while and it feels so good to wake up earlier when it is light.

  4. I LOVE these photographs. They actually convince me, that it IS possible to take great pictures even in bright sunshine (I often had the experience that those kind of photographs tend to look rather like "quick snapshots" than artistic photos, but yours are really prooving otherwise. I love the first one especially). By the way I just started my own film photography blog, maybe you'd like to take a look (just click on my name on top of this comment to get there). I hope you're having a good day (: Julia
