Sven Začek - Spring greenery


Hiking in a spring forest and following a small river is something that I enjoy. Every bend has its own character. Some have old fallen trees that make crossing the river possible, some have high banks, some have wildflowers growing in masses. This particular bend had a colorful boulder that made me stop and start framing a photograph. And of course the lush green ferns that had just opened up. Good times…
