Spring and Winter Overlapping
Thursday 7 March 2013   —   Category: Shooting

Last month, in February, when taking my daily neighborhood walk, I came across some glowing yellow crocuses blossoming along the sidewalk. I was surprised to see such flowers in the middle of winter, but since I don’t know much about flowers, maybe that’s normal for crocuses?!

As usual, I had my pocket Canon S100 camera with me, so I captured the beautiful moment, and then promptly forgot about the photo until this last weekend!

Now, almost a month after what appeared to be Spring in bloom, the signs of Winter are still all around. Last night a dusting of snow settled on Marys Peak — the highest point in the Oregon Coast Range. I was out on my daily neighborhood walk again today, and snapped this shot along the way.

The Canon S100 does not have a very powerful zoom — only a 120mm equivalent — so it was still a pretty wide shot, considering that Marys Peak is about 22 miles away. Therefore, this photo is a 100% crop, making the mountain appear much closer than in the original shot.

Spring and Winter are overlapping, but the Oregon rainy season still has another three or four months to go!
