"Cant See the Forest for the Trees"

Posted by
Denny Jump (Bellevue, WA, United States) on 11 February 2017 in Plant & Nature.

In Winter, sometimes a wall of trees can be more attractive than in summer, thanks to the bare branches.....I was really impressed with this interesting view. I hope you like it.

** Staples Singers - "Respect Yourself"

- " We do not move forward from a middle opinion, which is undemocratic but mediocratic.
We advance from a creative passion "- (Edgar Morin)

- "To photograph is to hold one's breath, when all faculties converge to capture fleeting reality. It's at
that precise moment that mastering an image becomes a great physical and intellectual joy."
- Henri Cartier-Bresson.

::Words from Denny:
- My beliefs, and values, have always been strongly tied-to music, especially Jazz, and Blues.
- The following artists and lyrics seem to "sum-up" where my spirit resides:
EARTH WIND AND FIRE;
"HOLD ON TO YOUR SPIRIT,
ALWAYS FEEL YOUR SOUL....
HONOR THE MAGIC IN YOUR HEART"

Agree that each season brings different attractions to the fore . . this is a particularly strong example.

@Ronnie 2¢: Thank you Ronnie. I have always enjoyed more the sight of all the branches of a tree. The twists and turns and all the other nuances! ;-)

franz from Baden, Austria

Excellent, sir! I, too, like the skeletal trees in winter, especially when they are surrounded by 'other hues' as is the case here!
Have a lovely weekend, and don't forget to take your camera along on your hikes ... ;-)

I like the tonal separation between the three distinctive elements in this composition Dennis.
