Although many people hold to the convenient fiction that spring starts on the equinox, I tend to consider March a spring month (and December the first month or winter). That’s not to say we don’t have wintery days in March (or November, for that matter). Today was such a day. After some decidedly spring-like days, it was cold and blustery this morning, with snow blowing around. It wasn’t really cold enough for the snow and Mother Nature gave up trying after a very little while. On the way to work I stopped for a few pictures as I crossed Lake Needwood. This panorama is made from five images taken with a 24mm lens (which is the equivalent to a 35mm lens on a 35mm camera). Often I’d try to increase the contrast in an image like this but this time I left it as it was to help convey the cold, flat light of the morning.
