Hint of Spring in February

…not all of February was cold and snowy

Last weekend we had beautiful weather that brought the walkers, dogs and photographers out in droves. I think people knew that more snow and colder temperatures were on their way so they took advantage of the cleared paths, sun and warmer climes.050-C6016-EFC2-43-FC-BCA4-EF096425-C551-1-201-a

Smartphone Photo Challenge – Week 9 – Mood

….thanks to Maranto Photography for hosting the Smartphone Photo Challenge

The mood here is serene and calm. I tried to capture the warmth of the setting sun even though the temperatures were hovering around freezing. I added more saturation and vibrance to this photo.5-D85-FA51-D92-C-4280-8490-BAAE7-B9-CEF5-C-1-201-a

For this one I added more contrast and vibrance. This intensified the colour of the water and helped to make the foreground and swan stand out more. Capturing the swan between the branches gives this photo a bit of a mysterious mood.
