My mother used to say that years are not like brothers, meaning there are huge differences in weather and also otherwise... I think this March is quite normal Finnish March: around zero, grey and raining. Still a lot of snow but it is fortunately melting away. Nothing pretty to photograph outside - not in any March, for the spring comes to Finland in April! The only sign of spring is the melting snow... I wanted to compare previous years and went through my archives and selected a few photos of March 2016, 2017 and 2018. To me these four past March are like twin brothers!
In March 2016 we got a few showers of new snow, snow was melting though
and a bit of perennials could be seen ...
In March 2017 at Easter the snow was almost totally gone and I had some tete a tete
daffodils in a pot on the terrace. But they got a blanket of fresh snow!
In March 2018 I photographed outside only icicles
- they were truly handsome hanging from the roof of our garage!
This March I have taken only once photos outside - it was this handsome goshawk visiting.
Taken through glass and at a long distance.
This is the first time I succeeded to photograph this handsome raptor.
Wishing you a pleasant weekend & the new week to come!
