[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The beginning of April has been very cold in most of Europe in 2004, the south of France being no exception. But of course you try to catch all the sun you can, even if you have to stay inside wrapped up against the still biting winds.
This shot tries to capture the feel of that early spring sun, with shadows of naked branches on the wall, but nevertheless a strong light that promises better times.
I have only cropped slightly and resized.

Hi Per,
Last week i was in south of Portugal and went in beach at 9:00 in the morning and go out at 19:00, with very good weather :)

I like your photo, it's a very good composition and express calm and serenty.

Well done

Lovely early sun Per, today excellent weather in Belgium, early too. Nice photo and good colours, good job.

Hi Per, we had 8 C in Holland on the boat this weekend. Today is glorious. Very quiet picture. I like the mood.

Wonderful capture, Per, very calming and with a good spring feel indeed. Having that barren branch at the top, and its shadow at the bottom, is a vital addition and makes for a very original framing. Well done.
