Yesterday as I walked out of work, it wasn’t quite dark out. The sky was blue. The ice was melting.

It made me giddy. I went home, hauled out my tripod, and finally took some photos. Then went for a nice walk with my new Yak Trax (the ice isn’t quite melted yet, and I’ve already taken a couple of seasonal spills…)

I like the cool blue light of winter evenings. I like winter when it snows, or when we have bluebird days, but not so much when it’s gray and dark and drab.

These are a few photos that have caught my eye lately on Flickr – winter with a touch of spring to come. I’m looking forward to a three day weekend with equal parts time spent around the house and meeting up with friends. I’ll try to take some photos, if I can get some light.

Have a nice weekend!
