May at last and it seems the last snow has just melted. Somehow it feels as if the seasons and the climate are not in sync. The trees, birds and flowers all want to start growing while the wind still blows cold and damp. The height of the sun in the sky will hopefully re-connect the two and everything can get on with another year of starting over.
It’s the time to be quick as a photographer. One day there’s a great composition and the next it’s gone as flowers pass their peak and babies grow rapidly. Much like chasing fall colors it feels like the best way to handle this season is to go into the woods and stay for a month or so, patiently keeping an eye on all the goings-on and being there when the best view manifests itself. Tough to do as an amateur.
