Longing for spring..

It's 4 feet of snow outside, but atleast the sun is starting to come back, and it's barley shinging in the mountains in the background. God I long for springtime...

Great photo Ragnar!.....the spring flowers are just coming into bloom where I live in the north of England but this is taking me right back to full winter (although we don't often get 4 feet of snow!)

We will have a full winter here for at least 1 more month, and the only reason this little hill has some dead growth from last year is that it's windy on this spot.

I now I kinda overdid it in photoshop on this one (you can see that on the mountains in the background), but the light was so flat and there was almost no contrast in the picture, so I had to do something to make it stand out and not be to flat.

Welcome to Aminus. Great shot, even though you think you over did it. I hear you, winter has lasted long enough. A lot will change in the next few weeks. It'll continually get warmer. Before you know it, we'll be complaining of mosquitos and black flies.
