Spring is coming?

It's cold and windy and more snow is coming tonight and two days from now Spring is supposed to be arriving. I was out doing a shoot for a client today and the rawness of the weather got my attention when I realized how cold my fingers were on my camera body. That plus the difference in temperature between my face and the viewfinder constantly created a buildup of fog on the glass that impaired a clear view of what I was shooting.

The photograph above is my daughter with that forlorn look riding up in the tram to Mt. Pilatus in Switzerland on a day like today.

A Light exists in Spring
Not present on the Year
At any other period —
When March is scarcely here

A Color stands abroad
On Solitary Fields
That Science cannot overtake
But Human Nature feels.

It waits upon the Lawn,
It shows the furthest Tree
Upon the furthest Slope you know
It almost speaks to you.

Then as Horizons step
Or Noons report away
Without the Formula of sound
It passes and we stay —

A quality of loss
Affecting our Content
As Trade had suddenly encroached
Upon a Sacrament.
