Default A Stitch in Time-3 Seasons

This little pond is near an apartment complex and frequently presents nice photographic opportunities. These pictures were taken in the summer, autumn and winter.

Beautiful! Capture spring just as things are greening up and you will have a perfect set!

Darn, I was hoping no one would notice that spring was missing! I have never been able to get that just right spring day, or if it was I was either working or didn't have my camera with me. But I will give that a more serious effort as the next spring season approaches.

A wonderful set, even without spring. Adding it would set it off well, but I do understand about not quite being able to capture it. We used to have a couple of cottonwood trees in front of our house and while I got good spring, autumn and winter shots, I never managed to get a decent summer shot before we got fed up with them and took them out.

Nice. I really like the ice on the water.

I agree with all that has been said. How about shooting a spring version and posting the series again. Don't worry about not fitting the current challenge in effect at the time. We'll consider it a "late" posting for this challenge!

I truly to plan to get that 4th season with the coming spring. It has really inspired me after digging through lots of photos to get these three. It's not as if this pond is isolated-it is located adjacent to a large apartment complex. A walking trail of a little less than a mile runs around it and takes you past an old original pond that was known many years ago as Moonshine Lake--and you can guess what was being fabricated near there in the 1920's! In the 1950's when I was growing up this entire area was a cow pasture. Times have changed!! Thanks for all the positive comments. Angie

Thanks spedangie, for sharing your seasons!

Particularly with the snow and ice, and autumn (fall) colours the seasons are quite noticably different to each other.

I'm glad you caught the bank of the lake nearest you in each shot (please do that for the spring shot too!)

Here in the southern part of Australia (Adelaide) - 'winter' and spring are greener, wetter, while summer and autumn are drier and more yellow/brown (especially with previous years' droughts).

The winter / spring just gone by (6 months till December 2010) were wetter than most, and we had a storm a few weeks ago, so things are greener now than any of the 3 previous Christmases I've had in Adelaide.
