The return of color to the midwest

Greens, purples, yellows, oranges... spring is here in all of its colorful glory.  It's been a mild winter, but I couldn't be happier to see spring arrive.  All of the fields have a lush carpet of green, the flower beds are sprouting, and the trees are waking up.  Here's a lovely wide angle of the field behind our house.

Just before sunset last night, I combined my new favorite toy (the Canon 250d screw-on close up lens) with my old favorite lens (the Canon 50mm 1.8) to get some fabulous shallow DOF for the first arrivals of spring.  I'm so glad to be breathing in that fragrant 80* air.
