Dieter Damschen - Spring Snowflake


19.03.2011 My first impression of spring this year was the silhouette of a spring snowflake at the waterside. Sunlight playing on the surface of a small stream produce the reflections and the focus somewhere between water and snowflake made the special atmosphere.

Location: Germany

    Very exciting! It makes me smile seeing snowflakes already blooming in Germany. Deep snow covers Estonian landscape and it seems we have to wait a long time until flowers begin to bloom.

    No-no. In Southern Estonia there were already reports that some of the first Snowdrops have alread been seen. Spring is all about water and flowers and new smells and this photo captures the spirit of spring.

    The coloration and the species reflect very nicely the feeling of early spring -- when snow is going and green is still scarce.
