Weeks ahead of season

Subtle light

We were blessed here in Eastern Iowa, and probably in the whole Midwest of the United States, with an extremely mild winter and a very early spring this year. Can you believe, the crocus blooms are gone since more than  two weeks already, the Daffodils (for my German friends: Osterglocken) are almost all gone already, and the tulips and fruit trees are in full bloom...

Normally the green leaves take over the valleys along the Little Makoqueta River, where we live,  and the Mississippi in the month of May. This image was made today and tells the story how much we are ahead of season. I love subtle light in nature and a walk down in the valley just before sunset made me find this image.

 Chag Sam-each, and Happy Easter, wherever you are in the world my friends.
