Spring is coming

This one would have been great to take with a swivel display... maybe Canon will add this feature some day to their camera! Anyway, I really enjoy the smooth background blur that the EF-L 17-40 is giving here!

Post-processing was not trivial here, as dynamic range is pretty wide in this image. It would have been an ideal candidate for a HDR composite, but I would never have managed to keep the camera in place long enough for an automatic bracketing. As a consequence, the shadow regions are rather noisy, but I still wanted to brighten the up somewhat.
