I have been away for some time - too much work and crappy stuff going on = too little inspiration = no interest towards photography. I'll be back at May 2013
What happens in May 2013?
Snow hopefully melts and the dead nature starts to turn green (from brown/gray). In 2012 April we got suddenly 25cm/10inch more snow. Checking 2012 photos lakes still had ice 1st May (picture) and even there wasn't anymore snow on the ground nature was still colorless and dead due to cold weather (of course evergreen stuff can look nice, even earlier). Like Toothwalker guessed it's hard to shoot my typical style photography before may. In practice the "green time" lasts from mid-May to beginning of September.
However I was awakened from 2013 winter sleep got some weird feeling "have to go shooting something" after seeing Lofoten photos. So I searched from camerabags and closets and finally found 2/100, 2/25 and 5DmkIIs, charged batteries, adjusted 5DmkIIs to daylight saving and was ready to shoot something.
Options were rather limited since I gave my car for my parents for the winter (I live in city and takes ~20 minutes to bicycle to work so no need for car for anything else than photography). So took a bus and went to downtown. Luckily it had snowed ~10cm/4inch last night, which gave little different look to things to the city. Hard to find anything to shoot from the city but managed to shoot few frames.

"Frenckel yard" - Carl Zeiss Distagon T* 2/25 @ f/8, 1/250s (PP: unlike my normal style this is not straight out from Apple Aperture, had to adjust multiple sliders and spend tens of seconds for it)
