Spring & Winter (SX50)

One of the interesting things about living where I do is, that it is possible visit several different climate zones, and even different seasons within a thirty mile radius.

Spring: spring in the valley. spring flowers are starting to bloom, and the globe willows with budding with new leaves.

the following pictures where taken in the canyon (shown above) between the first and second peaks (directly above the temple) to the far left.

Early Spring: about half way up the canyon I stopped to get a shot of an oxbow in the creek. The it's in the 40's and the snow is starting to melt.

Winter 1: near the top of the canyon, on the way to Willow lake.  The snow is deep and high on the trunks of the aspens.

Winter 2: a pristine snow covered alpine meadow overlooking the view down the canyon. The twigs poking through the snow in the bottom left foreground belong to an elderberry bush/tree that is probably 8 feet tall.

Winter 3: A pano view of an aspen covered slope to the canyon bottom.

Thanks for looking.
