No, this not from this spring. We don't yet have foliage on trees and grass is just starting to turn green.
But will not take long, Nordic summer is just around the corner.

And I just sought that spring had really arrived in Finland already. But as I know for myself, it just takes a little longer up there. The light is very pleasing, filtering trough the trees like that. I wish you a very sunny and pleasant spring.
PS: Congratulations on the Lejonas success against Germany in the hockey world championships, may the win the title yet again.

I had to check the date first here, and no, this was not this year;) Spring is very late this year but I am very much looking forward to such a pleasant day as you have pictured here. A very pleasant view, can´t wait to get out on my bike like this man here!

longing for the spring and sun,am I right?we had also wait quite long for the first signs of spring.Nice view from the park.Indeed the light is exceptional here.The trees obscuring partially sun rays create here very eye-catching and quite strong contrast.I like it!
Have a nice weekend

Beautiful spring scene! I think spring is the best time of the year if not for the allergens from which I am suffering right now. Good lighting and dof with nice details. Good to have the person for scale. Well done, tfs.

The light is quite fantastic and the view is generally very nice. There are some really fine tones of green (and almost yellow). The man on the bike increases the pleasant feeling of this photo. But this was a few years ago. This spring sucks! I want it to be like in this picture! Now ;-).
