Spring has finally arrived in Arkansas.  Here’s some inspiration to get off the couch and head outside courtesy of Taraf Abu Hamdan.

“I took these pictures on a hike to Hawksbill Crag at the Whitaker Point Trail [at the Buffalo River National Park],” Taraf said. “I definitely recommend taking the time to check it out. It was a beautiful sunny and humid day at the beginning of april. What I loved about the hike was the new growth of plants and flowers, the small bursts of colors. I tried to capture the contrasting colors. There is so much to capture in Arkansas, from the landscapes to the small details out there in nature.”
