Lena Sanver uses landscape photography to playfully propose a Fifth Season:
“Where I live we have five seasons: winter, spring, summer, autumn and greyumn.”
Is it between fall and winter?
In continental climates and where precipitation is low, it often feels like the transitions between seasons are different from the storybook norms. In north central Alberta, spring lasts about a week – winter changes so rapidly into summer. Plants come suddenly into bloom as the cold temperatures of winter rise and long hours of sunlight in the high latitude allows plants to flourish.
