Once in a year there is a time in Lithuania called “fresh green”. It’s time when trees and everything around them start to become green. It lasts very shortly and leaves get usual summer shades soon. For the last two weeks I’ve been fascinated by this beauty and tried to shot those very-fresh-green moments of the spring. Sharing them with you!

April 27. Everything started to become green around this time. One birch at Vingis park received my attention that evening.
April 29. By the water trees become green much faster. Žalieji ežerai, Vilnius.
The shore of the lake is already filled with green.
May 2. Passing ambulance surrounded by trees (for photographers – shutter speed 13 sec., before sunset, the bridge is moving when cars are passing by).
May 5. Visited Merkine, views were astonishing and I felt very happy to live in such a beautiful country.
The birches of Druskininkai looked perfect that day.
Just a wonderful evening in Druskininkai.
May 7. The road of spring (Druskininkai-Vilnius). I stopped every 10 minutes, just couldn’t pass all this spring by.
An exploding shack near Varėna.
Near Vilnius aeroclub.
50 shades of green.
Vilnius is becoming covered by the green wave.
Gediminas tower feels really good between fresh green trees.
May 9. The town of Molėtai has great boats.
The Lithuanian Museum of Ethnocosmology meets the spring. It’s not an UFO in the top, it’s a flying stork.
May 11. Checked where started – at Vingis park. Yes, there are much more fresh green leaves now!
The fresh green time will end soon and I suggest to extend it forever! All published photos are available as prints for your home, office or friend.
