What i like about february?
No, i’m joking. But there is also a little bit of truth in this joke, because i don’t like the weather in february – at all.
First the things i like. It’s better to see the positive things (firstly).
1. Days are getting longer.
Ok, that’s true and i’m really grateful for this. But the nights are still soo dark.
2. Spring is on it’s way
I always enjoy to discover the first snowdrops and other cute little flowers showing up in the second month of the year. For me as a nature photographer there will pop up many new photo subjects, flowers, buds, seeds and the first insects, that will be great !
3. Warmer temperatures
I think we have to wait until the end of the month, but THEN we will enjoy the warmer sunshine and it will be awesome to stay outside for a lomger time without freezing.
4. Ski holidays
Not for me anymore. But many people love it to go skiing or snoarbording during the “sport holidays” as we say here in Switzerland. The villages up in the mountains are crowded and the rush hours around Zürich will not be as big as usual.
5. The month is shorter
It’s the shortest month of the year, this is funny.
What i don’t like about february
1. The weather
At the moment it’s windy and stormy. Not even an umbrella is useful to protect us from this weather. Things are flying around, it’s rather dangerous to drive. Tree branches or flying stones could damage the car.
2. The cold
At the moment, it’s warm but next week, the cold will be back. There will be freezing temperatures during the night and probably we will get some snow. I hope not lots, but we newer know. Sometimes it’s snowing often in february and i don’t like this at all, because it’s enough with this cold winter weather for me, i’m longing for the warmth in spring.
3. Winter cloths
It was cozy to be enwrapped in warm winter jackets, wearing gloves, scarf and warm boots, but now i would like to get rid of them.
4. Not enough light
The nights are still long and dark, fog is often hiding the sun and there is not much light for great bright pictures. The sky is gloomy and the trees are still mystical black silouettes. This might have its own awe, but i’m looking forward to the growth of fresh green, to the beautiful spring blooms and the warmth and brightness of the spring.
Thank you for stopping by,
have a nice day,
