THE CHANGING SEASONS: VERNAL EQUINOX 2016

THE CHANGING SEASONS: MARCH 2016

Welcome to spring! Sunday was the Vernal Equinox, when day and night were the same length.

72-Perfect-Vernal-Equinox-2016-032016_033

Knowing it was the first day of spring, I set my alarm to wake me in time to photograph the sunrise. This sequence of shots were all take during the approximately 2 minute window of the equinox.

SUNDAY MORNING: DAWN ON THE EQUINOX

Spring is here. The earth rejoices. Me too!

And then, the following morning (yesterday), the fickle finger of fate, known locally as “the weather” decided to make a point.

MONDAY MORNING: DAWN, 2nd DAY OF SPRING

Please visit Cardinal Guzman’s gorgeous site to see his amazing pictures and find links to other participants in this wonderful year-long challenge!

These are the rules for Version 1 (Changing Seasons V1):

These are the rules for Version 2 (Changing Seasons V2):

  • Tag your posts with #MonthlyPhotoChallenge and #TheChangingSeasons
  • Each month, post one photo (recipe, painting, drawing, whatever) that represents your interpretation of the month.

This is a fascinating challenge and if you take pictures, you will enjoy it. This is my second year as a participant and I still love it!

  5. You set the alarm to wake you in time to photograph on a Sunday? That’s commitment! I hope that the snow has melted again by now. Personally I’m tired of snow and I’ve had enough of it for this season (but it might try for a comeback soon though).

    • It melted before noon … and snowed again last night … but it’s pretty much gone now (noon, again). I believe this is the end of winter. This year wasn’t so bad. More like normal winters from the past that these epic endless blizzards we’ve had in recent year. I hope it is the beginning of a trend! I am SO ready for warm winds and flowers 🙂
