What season is this?

Apparently the definition of season is a very relative thing.  Now, I have a very strict idea of what the seasons are supposed to be as follows:

  • WINTER – December, January, February
  • SPRING – March, April, May
  • SUMMER – June, July, August and
  • FALL – September, October, November

This image was made at Rocky Mountain National park in May.  It sure looks like winter to me.  I’m sure this is very ordinary weather in this part of the country in May but it was a bit of a shock to me.  Why is it that we are so surprised when all our rules are turned upside down when we go to a new place?

The reality is that each place has its own seasons.  When I look back on the places that I have lived, the seasons were certainly not the same.  In New Orleans, I always told people there were only 3 seasons: Hot, Wet and Hurricane.  In Milwaukee, they had four seasons but winter was half the year and spring and fall lasted about a week each.

I guess I need to get out more so I am not so stuck in one way of thinking.

What do you think?

Photography is my way to capture and share the amazing beauty of God’s handiwork in the people and places that I experience every day. I focus mainly on nature and travel subjects but also do alot of event work for my church and the occasional wedding or portrait session. My residence is Roswell, Georgia – a northern suburb of Atlanta. I try to get around the Southeast as often as possible and would love to explore other parts of the USA and the rest of the world.
