Spring will soon be here, and that means some of the best opportunities for landscape and nature photography are just around the corner. There are plenty of beautiful scenes to photograph during the spring, including blossoming trees, blooming flowers, vibrant greens coming to life, birds and other wildlife, as well as flowing creeks and waterfalls.
Regardless of what type of nature photography you prefer, you’re bound to find some amazing subjects in the spring. When I first became interested in photography, fall was my favorite time of the year because of the autumn colors. But once I got some experience in the spring, I quickly realized that spring is equally as great a time to photograph as the fall.
One of the nice things about spring is that some of the best subjects give you a bit of a longer window than you have in the fall with peak colors that might only last a few days. The vibrant greens last for several weeks and streams and waterfalls will be flowing nicely for a while after the snow melts. Flowers may not bloom for a long period of time, but they don’t all bloom at once, so you can usually catch something at its peak.
