Colors of spring

The forest on Sinkhole Mountain, near the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, begins a colorful awakening from its winter slumber. Buds and blossoms begin to open on the far slope, creating a shifting pallette of color behind a quintet of trees.

This was captured on a mild spring morning. A promise of more to come.

Love the colours and soft focus. It could almost be a painting!

This is a gorgeous photo. It's like a rainbow playing hide-and-seek in the woods.
