Jura Hike

Last vestiges of winter : Jura Mountains : Gex, FR

A couple of Sundays ago, we went for a little hike in the Jura Mountains, just west of Geneva. The forest is shedding the last vestiges of winter and making way for spring. In the last few days, the temperatures have risen and the days are getting longer. I'll start posting the obligatory flower shots over the next few weeks, of course, because who doesn't love a little springtime flora? In the meantime, farewell, winter!

Black and white was the prefect application for this hike. I've always wanted to do black and white frost pictures. I really need to do that.

That first shot is great in B&W. It looks like silver!

Love these black & white studies. The capture of winter is poignant.
