Blooms in February?


I’m a photographer and winter is not my favorite season. My eye is drawn to color, and there are only so many scenes of grey and brown I can shoot. So last February I really enjoyed the unusually heavy blooms of the red maples. They seem to grow especially well in the creek bottoms and our neighborhood borders Shackelford Creek to our west. I walk it every morning with my dog.

I have shot the red maple many times in the fall, but this is the first time I’ve shot it in bloom.
