Beautiful shots Paula!
Tusen takk CG 🙂 I wonder what it will look like next month.
Yeah, your spring comes earlier than ours, so I’m guessing we’ll see some more green.
This depends on whether I shoot it the first of the month or near the end, and I am planning to shoot it at the very start of March. It is very likely to capture some snow too. The weather is playing funny this year.
BTW: My company is going to have a company meeting in Croatia, but I’ll have to stay at the office…
In Zagreb I suppose? Too bad you are not coming.
Yes, it’s too bad that I’m not coming. It’s in a place called Split.
Split – I don’t like (at all), but it would be interesting for foreigners to see.
On the bright side I’m invited with a small part of the company to Italy/Venice in August, which I think will be nicer. I hope they have gluten-free pasta there! 😀
Don’t expect to eat well in Venice. I hear that they are more interested in charging a lot than leaving a good impression on guests. If you are eating at a good place, go for the seafood instead – I am not sure they have gluten-free pasta. We are going there the first week in March (for just 3 days). How long will you stay? August is usually crazy hot and extremely smelly.
I checked it now: we’re going to Firenze, not Venice. We’ll only stay for a couple of days.
Florence is all about Renaissance, very lovely but it is so crowded. We were there in October.
I like the reflection.
Thank you very much
I like the way that even though we are still in winter you have caught the change in the year – looking towards spring. Lovely, Paula.
It is a large area and it is not difficult to find something interesting to shoot there. I hope to take some pics of snow for a change. It is when this park looks its best 🙂 I am not really a Spring person 😀

Lovely shots, even better than last month’s I believe. My favourite this time is the pair of benches with that lovely building in the distance and such glorious light playing across the whole.
What is the address of your wordpress photoblog? I found betgloft.co.uk but it is asking me to log in through different accounts to comment on your changing season :S
Sorry about that – I do love Koken and no longer trust WordPress but Koken uses Disqus for commenting, which is I admit a pain. You’ll find the Wp version at http://www.woolgathering.org.uk/2015/02/the-changing-seasons-02-january/
Thanks. Why don’t you trust WP?
Because I have been hacked several times now and I also don’t like the way that they have betrayed their original “free and always will be” stance. I stopped using wordpress.com when they began to stick adverts in my posts and now only use the self-hosted version but even that is prey to Premium this and Premium that. The blogging environment is not what it was
I am sorry you have been hacked.
“Blogging is about commenting, not clicking likes. Be heard…..” – Hallelujah, sister! How it grieves me that readers no longer join in discussion. Blogging feels like such a lonely activity nowadays. Clicking a Like button is not just lazy but I think downright rude if one does not trouble to explain one’s engagement with the post. Yes, I am that Social Media Dinosaur. I like it that way.
I am not sure what blogging was before, not even how old the “blogging” is. I think that many people treat their blogs as their fb page – another thing I dislike a lot is fb.
One more beautiful than the next. Stunning images
It makes me happy to hear that DM 🙂
These are all beautiful, Paula. I love the road going to that house/building. I look forward to seeing it with full foliage on the trees. I also wouldn’t mind sitting on those benches for a while!
Hello Linda 🙂 Yes, these benches are the best viewpoint in the whole park I think. Winter is more poetic than Spring. I doubt that foliage will make it look better.
You’ve captured your winter light beautifully, Paula.
🙂 Thank you kindly Lisa 🙂
What a gorgeous gallery Paula! I lovethe variety of the landscape images and then the close up of the bird.
Thanks, dear. It is exciting to be able to shoot some wildlife in winter too 🙂
Beauties ❤ Awesome clicks, Paula 🙂
Glad you like them Andy. Are you taking part in this challenge too?
I dunno yet 😦 I am so buried under work. I am hardly left with any energy to click. I will give it a try. *fingers crossed* 😉
I am hooked – and I especially can’t wait to see what the tree looks like next month –
😀 Great 🙂
Wonderfully stunning photos! Thanks for sharing. I just shot mine this weekend, just need to edit.
Hello Nato. I tried to find your challenge post, but maybe it is still unpublished.
Oh I’m still editing the pics, but up soon. Last night, I went to see a musical, so no editing was completed.
nice shots. “maksimir put” and “grey heron” are my favorites. at what hour did you take them? the hue in the sky is super.
About 4:30 p.m.
Terrific set, Paula.
Why thank you Jane 😀
you always impress us with your images. I love the one with rays of light.
I actually took a deep breath as if I was standing in the landscapes.
Gorgeous shots, Paula. The bench pic is my favourite. The sky is so beautiful. 🙂
Such a beautiful gallery Paula! Love the light in each one of them.
What a nice variety of images here for the challenge 🙂
It would be hard for us from the tropics to take part in this challenge, as hardly anything changes across seasons 🙂
We have only two seasons, rainy and not rainy 🙂
I think I heard Indian weather report once saying that you only know: hot, very hot, and hell hot. I wouldn’t thrive in your climate, but you have so much going for you- imensily rich history and architecture, people that are less conformist than in other parts of the world. I find your peninsula captivating.
Looking a little brighter in your part of he world already Paula, all such restful and inviting shots!
Belos momentos! 😀
Looks beautiful Paula. Even though it is a little cold, that bench does look inviting 🙂
Beautiful photos, Paula.
My city 🙂
