Spring is one of the four conventional temperate seasons following winter and preceding summer. The specific definition of the exact timing of "spring" varies according to local climate, cultures and customs. At the spring equinox, days are close to 12 hours long with day length increasing as the season progresses. Spring and "springtime" refer to the season, and also to ideas of rebirth, rejuvenation, renewal, resurrection, and regrowth.
There is only one period during the year when the feeling of “rebirth” takes place in the nature that surrounds us, a feeling accompanied by sensations of freshness, warmth, hope and beauty, all happening when the season we call spring starts to take place.
Everybody loves spring because it is the season which awakes from numbness, the season when love blossoms because the hearts and senses of humans are being caressed by the beauties of nature. There cannot be a person who can whole-heartedly claim that he or she doesn’t enjoy spring.
The changes that take place in the shift from winter to spring, gradual as they are, bring the idea of a new beginning and of prosperity for the year that has started. The nature that surrounds us, a manifestation of our planet Earth, is the environment that hosts and influences our lives in a significant measure. So, when spring comes and winter ends, in their contrasting beauties, new ideas and feelings begin to take place in the human’s minds. The blossoming of trees and flowers, the green color that grass starts to display once again, the warm light brought by the happier sun, the animals that come out from their winter hiding places, all these things together bring a new dimension to the human life, which has been vastly depicted across time in so many shapes of art.
Of course that the predominant form of art that depicts spring is visual art, although literature and music also bring images of springs through words and musical notes or sounds. However, we would like to concentrate on the visual representations of spring, maybe interpreting the paintings and photographs as attempts of the human beings to bring spring into their one home.
In digital art there is the power of enhancing reality which brings new perspectives on spring to our imagination. Fluorescent colors put together with other bright colors, futuristic shapes and distorted images of landscapes, trees, creeks, flowers or animals make up an utopian scenery of an ever-lasting dream world of spring.
Photography, the most veridical of the visual forms of representation surprises nature in its exact beauty, bringing to the human eye images of spring from all over the world which maybe will never be seen live. Nature on all continents, where spring exists in different forms and manifestations is surprised in pictures from the widest scenery to the smallest detail, giving the chance to the humans to find out what nature has to offer when it is at its blooming peak. Here are some of the beautiful collection of spring for you to enjoy and also try to contribute by planting trees as many as you can.
