Spring is on its way

After a work appointment, I had time to take a walk through the "Fontanili di corte Valle Re", a nature reserve near Reggio Emilia. Here a series of small lakes have formed along the spring line, where water emerges after flowing underground from the low Apennine foothills. It is one of my favourite locations when I want to photograph the Po valley plain.

Spring is just starting here with the first signs of buds and blooms.

The reserve is divided in two halves by the A1 Autostrada and the Rome to Milan high speed train line. I have visited the Southern part for a rural walk many times. But it was the first time I had explored the slightly wilder reserve to the North. It was a nice surprise and I will be back in the future.

I just popped the 24-200 on my Z7 and went minimalist for this walk. It is nice sometimes to be unencumbered with gear and have just a camera and lens slung over my shoulder. The 24-200 gives an output that is more than good enough for this sort of situation.

Thanks.

The first set was taken around sunset, hence the warm colours. I deliberately took the second set a bit earlier to get some different results.
