I went out with my camera the day before Spring began to make some photos in a nearby park. More snow had fallen overnight to add to the tremendous amount of snow we'd gotten over the winter, and I was compelled to make a sarcastically beautiful photo as if to say "Come on Winter... SPRING is supposed to be here tomorrow!" I made that photo just after 4 a.m. with a 30 second exposure in the darkness.
Then I continued to step out early to make photos once a week throughout all of Spring. Below are 15 photos from sometime during the 4 o'clock hour during Spring of 2014.
