Spring sycamore shadows

Sycamore shadowSpring is here, but the shadows are still long. This was a few minutes before 11 a.m. a bit over a week ago; the foreground tree casting that shadow is a sycamore (Acer pseudoplatanus) and the leafless tree on the left in the background is an ancient apple. In some situations here in Aotearoa sycamores are considered weeds because of their propensity for springing up uninvited.

It seems like just yesterday that you were writing about how cold it was... and now it's Spring. The world keeps turning.

This could be in Alberta. Awesome.

Thanks Michael. Maybe I'll have to visit Alberta — just to see if you're right, of course ;^)
