Spring Greens

For a several week period in late spring, Wisconsin is filled with a wonderful mix of greens as vegetation emerge from a long winter. Grasses and spring wildflowers emerge first and tend to have the darkest greens while trees bud later resulting in softer lighter greens. The contrast of the greens in the image above was accentuated by an early morning sun brightening the trees but not yet reaching the forest floor. A hint of a footpath seems to add to the magic of this image.

The image was obtained near the Wisconsin River just outside of Stevens Point, Wisconsin along West River Drive.
