I love the seasons and spring is one of my favorite times of year. There is still a slight chill in the air at night, everything smells fresh and new, the world starts to come alive again after it's sleepy winter - fresh, bright, green, colorful...and warm with the anticipation of summer.

The photos in this collection have been shot both near my home and in places I've been fortunate enough to travel to over the last couple of years in spring. These photos hopefully capture what I call our second most-colorful season.
