Depending on where you live, you may well be suffering through the same seasonal blur as we are in Ottawa this year. Our winter this year has been unusually long and cold. Indeed there is still ice on our Rideau Canal (a UNESCO World Heritage Site — not because it has ice into the second week in April). There have been days in the past month where it seemed like spring might actually arrive on more than just paper … but like a blur, it was then gone. So with this week’s challenge, it seem appropriate to pay homage to the fickle seasons and our propensity to wish for what we don’t have. This particular photo was certainly a mistake, a picture snapped before I realized that I’d changed my shutter speed to slow while I took milky pictures of a stream. The result is … well: a blur of spring verdure mixed with the sky peaking through the leaves.
