The Seasons. Spending a lot of my life in cooler climates, I’ve grown to appreciate what each distinct season has to offer. This is my entry in Booked.net‘s “Capture the Season” photo contest. Thank you to Erik of On My Feet or In My Mind for nominating me.
Autumn – Fall
I realize it is autumn/fall when I’m walking in a big city park and see the red, orange and yellow leaves on the trees like here at Point State Park in Pittsburgh, PA. The park is at the point where the Ohio, Allegheny and Monongahela rivers come together right in the heart of the city.
I realize it is winter when I see snow on the ground and random sculptures of ice like here at Edgewater Park in Cleveland, Ohio. The ice is formed from the waves of Lake Erie crashing into the shoreline. You can see the downtown skyline in the background.
I realize it is spring when I see lots of flowers and vegetable plants for sale like here at Eastern Market in Detroit. There is a yearly tradition in the Spring here of going to Flower Day, one of the biggest displays of flowers you’ll find anywhere.
I realize it is summer when the sun is shining, it’s hot outside, everything is green and I find myself migrating to one of my favorite spots, Lake Lanier. The biggest lake in Georgia, northeast of Atlanta, is a popular summer holiday spot.
It’s time to nominate some great bloggers to share some of their favorite photos of the seasons:
