After this long, cold, and snowy winter I headed over to the Asticou Azalea Garden, Northeast Harbor, Maine in search of signs of spring. I grabbed my 1970's (old school) macro lens and rejoiced under the overcast skies (soft light). I enjoy using my macro lens as an exercise in abstract photography - line, shape, form. Gratefully, I found a couple of images that I liked: one color and one black and white. To learn how to create images like this, consider attending one of my nature photography workshops in Acadia National Park.
