In spring, the axis of the Earth is increasing its tilt toward the Sun and the length of daylight rapidly increases for the relevant hemisphere. The hemisphere begins to warm significantly causing new plant growth to "spring forth," giving the season its name. Snow, if a normal part of winter, begins to melt, and streams swell with runoff. Frosts, if a normal part of winter, become less severe. In climates that have no snow and rare frosts, the air and ground temperature increases more rapidly. Many flowering plants bloom this time of year, in a long succession sometimes beginning even if snow is still on the ground, continuing into early summer. In normally snowless areas "spring" may begin as early as February (Northern Hemisphere) heralded by the blooming of deciduous magnolias, cherries, and quince, or August (Southern Hemisphere) in the same way. Subtropical and tropical areas have climates better described in terms of other seasons, e.g. dry or wet, or monsoonal, or cyclonic. Often the cultures have locally defined names for seasons which have little equivalence to the terms originating in Europe. Many temperate areas have a dry spring, and wet autumn (fall), which brings about flowering in this season more consistent with the need for water as well as warmth. Subarctic areas may not experience "spring" at all until May or even June, or December in the outer Antarctic.

Hello Daniel. Lots of fresh greenery, blooming daffodils, yes, it is spring. I like the beautiful light. I think it is a perfect photo for Easter. In this sense, many regards, wolfgang.

the mood you are describing in your nice note is very well conveyed and felt by the viewer!
This image is indeed a delight for everyone who was looking forward to spring. The light is very pleasant and the composition is excellent (as usual!). My compliments!

this is a lovely picture of spring. the yellow daffodils in the foreground provide great colour and introduce the viewer to the scene. the blue sky contrasts nicely with the flowers. lovely bright scene with the sun illuminating the grass and trees very well.

Beautiful spring shot taken in such a lovely park. The vivid colors make the work so eye-catching for me. Perfectly executed as always. thanks for sharing.

This is a great view which made me very jealous of your southern climate, until I noticed it was from last year, three weeks later than now. While we've just had fresh snow and several days near freezing point, maybe in three weeks Sweden will also look like this. I can only hope. The yellow flowers create a fine foreground and the light green dominance makes the whole picture very attractive.

una scena paradisiaca quella che hai ripreso con tanto verde e il laghetto a dare serenità.
Mi piace molto la naturalezza dei colori,

An idyllic springtime scene. Wonderful colours and reflections and good vertical frame. The willow trees and reflections create a lovely atmosphere of tranquillity.
Un abbraccio, Buona Pasqua

Une très jolie image printanière dans cette bonne composition verticale. Ce superbe parc va certainement être bientôt envahie par les promeneurs en quête de nature et de soleil.

I like the little Chinese style red arched bridge in the bg. It makes a nice focal point. Good sharpness & superb Spring colors & greenery, always a delight after the drab greys & browns of winter. Nice reflections & the yellow daffodils in the fg add depth as well as contrasting against the upper blue sky & skylight reflections. Tfs!
SWEETFREEDOM (18389) 2012-04-08 0:02
another nice p.o.v. of this red bridge. i like the green around the canal and the flowers in bg.

déjà presque deux ans avec cette photo, et le printemps était là avec sa verdure et au premier plan cette bordure de jolies fleurs jaunes, les saules pleureurs magnifiques au lon, ce plan d'eau, une superbe composition harmonieuse dans les couleurs et cadrage
SNOOP_Chan (3472) 2012-04-13 14:35
Salut Daniel, asta imi place mai mult decat cea cu rowing care mi se pare totusi prea ingusta. Bine formatul vertical si primavara care in sfarsit a ajuns si pe la noi.
