Leaves And Branches

Taking pictures of tree canopies is not that easy with an iPhone, but blue sky, branches and tree leaves have a magnetic effect on my attention, so I keep on trying.

And I’m happy with this one. I have no idea where it was taken. Though I could hunt through my files and find out, it really doesn’t matter. It’s not about the place, but the feeling. For me, this tree neatly wraps up natural beauty, abstract pattern and an emotional experience all in one. It’s uplifting. It rewards the eye that lingers and traces out a few of the branches. 

It’s a counterpoint to the shot of Roddlesworth and Tockholes and a contrast: summer, not winter; midday not early evening; colourful not monochrome; warm not cold… you get my drift.

Shared for the Daily Prompt: Branch. I imagine this one will have flushed out a good number of nature lovers. You might like to join in, or at least take a quick look.

    Given that I just looked out the window into the pre-dawn light and saw snow on the young tulips, I am particularly grateful for this image. The light on and through and over the leaves is most therapeutic. Thanks!
