A Meadowlark Spring

A Meadowlark Spring

Canon EOS 5D, 24-70mm

Spring is the renewal season, which brings rainy afternoons, blooming flowers and enough pollen to turn any car green.  For me, spring is either my favorite or second favorite season of the year; I can never make up my mind.  My other favorite is autumn, which I’ll blog about in five months (stay tuned).  After a long, cold winter, spring awakens not only flowers and trees, but my desire to be outside photographing the season change. 

In recent years, I’ve spent many spring Saturdays photographing flowers at Meadowlark Botanical Gardens in northern Virginia.  If you’ve never visited this gem of a park, I highly recommend you do.  I’m such a fan of the park, my wife and I ended up getting married in it.  It’s nestled in a secluded wooded area in between Vienna and Tyson’s Corner and offers walking trails, gazebos, ponds, bird watching and of course a multitude of seasonal flowers. 

While I’ve chosen to spend this spring photographing Great Falls National Park, I have missed my annual visit to Meadowlark.  I decided to pull an image I took a year or two ago at Meadowlark to share on this blog.  I always liked the lines, color and somewhat wide aperature setting in this photograph.  When I look at this photograph, it reminds me that nature is full of patterns and unique lines.  Unfortunately, we tend to be so busy that we don’t see everything nature has to offer.  Hopefully this image will help remind you of that.
