Took this shot last summer. Things are still pretty brown around here right now, not the best for photography in my opinion. While I believe creating beautiful landscape images is possible all year round, for me, early spring seems the most difficult.Things tend to start improving in May and June. Mountains still have a little snow; lakes,rivers,waterfalls are opening up; lower elevations are getting green and the leaves are coming out. Looking forward to getting out there in the next couple of months.
