This weekend I met, for the first time the members of Massifs Centraux (a collective from four local Photographers). Together we explored an area nearby the Mont-Dore (Auvergne -France), Col de Guéry. Although the calender tells us we are in Spring, the weather is reacting differently with colder temperatures. Between rain showers and thunderstorms I was able to take some images.
The Col de Guéry , is located in a regional nature park, Volcans d’Auvergne.
Due to the altitude (1268) and the colder Spring temperatures you can see that the tree tops in the Col de Guéry show a different color pallet then in lower parts of the Auvergne, where you already can see the different tints of green.
The leaf buds in the valley are still closed and the colors are gradually transforming from a nice red pastel color glow to different tints of green. But before we can see the green leafs we still have to wait a couple more weeks.
Images are taken with Canon 5DMII, 24-105 MM and Canon 300 L mm.
