10 on 10 February | Spring has Sprung

While parts of the country are still experiencing a winter wonderland,  spring has sprung here in California.  The trees are starting to bloom and the temperatures are mild.   As a former Midwesterner, I have to say this is one of the things I love about living on the West Coast. And love happens to…

    Those are such beautiful images. I love the lemons. I am looking forward to seeing some Spring outside–it’s a ways off in the Midwest (this morning it is 0 degrees Fahrenheit) but it always comes one way or another . . .ReplyCancel

      My parents live in IL and my mom said it was 20 below…brrr. Hopefully spring will be arriving for you soon. So glad you are part of this group.ReplyCancel

    Hi Kristina! Isn’t it crazy how it’s Spring already? I do wish we had a winter, though I do love the flowers everywhere, and you captured them so beautifully! I love your processing on all of these. I’m inspired and may just go out and shoot some flowers myself!ReplyCancel

      Thank you Kim. I used some presets from Kim Klassen…I’m really enjoying that online space. 🙂 And yes, it is so crazy to see how early spring has arrived this year.ReplyCancel

      Thank you Luciane and welcome to our blog circle. The blooms seem so early this year but I love it.ReplyCancel

  • Waow, that was a sight for winter-cold-sore-eyes 🙂 Thank you. I can almost smell the flowers and spring getting closer. I don´t want to look outside my window right now, but rather look at your images 🙂
    I am happy to know you take your time and really absorb the beauty of spring, I do too (in a few months)

      Welcome to our blog circle. I’m sure it is very chilly in Norway but hopefully spring will be arriving soon and you’ll be outside photographing flowers before you know it. 🙂ReplyCancel

  • Kristina, As always your images are beautiful! I love the magnolia blossoms (they are pink and I love pink!)ReplyCancel

      Aww thanks so much Laura. It’s crazy to see how early spring has come this year, isn’t it?ReplyCancel

    It really is Spring here! Lovely images ~ the purple is gorgeous.ReplyCancel

    • Kristina

      Thank you Kathleen…yes spring is here so early this year. A far cry from our Midwest days, no?ReplyCancel

  • Lovely images, Kristina! Such gorgeous tones and composition! Not having much of a winter in California is definitely one of the things I both love AND hate about San Diego! A little winter would be nice, but I guess we can’t be too picky! The purple flower is my favorite – the light, angle, bokeh, processing… it’s all super yummy!ReplyCancel
