Trees...



I enjoy photographing trees in early Summer and late Fall. The warm weather produces an abundance of leaves which can be the crown of any tree. The lack of leaves in Fall exposes the details of a tree, all the limbs and branches. This image "Cotton and Lace", captured in the Fall, reveals those details. The clouds in the background became the cotton, if you will, and the details became the lace. It just struck me as a magnificent combination. Sadly. lightning has since taken this tree down. The lesson we should all heed is that when your mind's eye sees an image then by all means capture it! Then you can enjoy it over and over again knowing that, in some cases, the original scene may be gone forever.  The magic of photography is a medium that instantly locks an image in time while providing the photographer the joy of creating the initial image.
