Spring themed Fine Art Nature Closeup Macro Photography

The winter tightens its grip on Sweden with each day yet there is still hope… at least I hope it is :) Don’t get me wrong I love winter, snow, ice and cold but sometime a girl needs to get cheered up with some strong colors :) So I decided to decorate our living rum with a series of my spring-themed macro shots. Strong lime greens colors of nature awakening from the winter slumber should be perfect for curing any kind of gloomy mood me think :) Here they come...





The idea of making a series came from a photographer friend of mine, Irina. Check out her amazing "One Tulip story" series!


Oh and did you know that in many folklores and literatures, Green is the color of nature, fertility, life. Grass green is the most restful color. Green symbolizes self-respect and wellbeing and is the color of balance. It also means learning, growth and harmony and has become a symbol of environmentalism. Green is a safe color, if you don't know what color to use anywhere use green.
Green contains the powerful energies of nature, growth, desire to expand or increase. Balance and a sense of order are found in the color green. Change and transformation is necessary for growth, and so this ability to sustain changes is also a part of the energy of green.

Hi Alecia, I hope you've been well! What gorgeous photos! Now is the time I start yearning for new growth too. I cut some branches & brought them inside to force early growth in a vase, and it's been lovely watching the buds develop. Nice to catch up w/ you a little now that I'm back in bloggy land, yours is always so beautiful. I'm in love w/ your Ares bracelet & would wear it myself. :) Made me laugh too, as that's what we named our snake until we thought he was a she & changed it to Eris. Once we discovered he was a he after all, we just left it!
