Impression of Seasons

There are many ways to mark the seasons of the year. Is there snow? Do I see green? Is anything blooming? Do I need to rake leaves? But for a photographer, it’s all about color and light.  Here are a few impressionist images that mark the seasons.

Every spring, fields on the west side of Morton Arboretum burst forth with thousands of daffodils, and other spring flowers. It is a photographer’s dream come true, especially if the weather cooperates. This year, I was anxious to use the impressionist techniques to see what splashes of yellow amongst the trees would look like. I went at sunset and the orange glow added to the ambience. Then I pulled out my iPhone 5s I with a new app, SlowShutter, to see what would happen. Pretty impressive!

I have a gallery on Twenty20 where you can get canvas prints, framed prints, prisms, and more from the Instagram photos I create. So I ordered a print to see what the quality was like. I’m impressed! I’m looking forward to matting and framing it!
