Love in the Springtime

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.
