Seattle doesn’t rain as often as most other people think, but days are short and gray most of the year. Spring is the time when things are different up here. I saw this tree on my walk up the hill and I’m sure it’s been this way forever, but spring is when I notice.

It also doesn’t hurt that the return of the sun means that there is actual natural light outside. I really like low-light and different lighting techniques, but nothing does for colors what natural light does.
