Human "Fly Trap" - Sammamish Trail

Posted by
Denny Jump (Bellevue, WA, United States) on 6 April 2017 in Landscape & Rural.

Along the Sammamish River Trail, Weeping Willow trees can be seen as one enjoys the path. I have always loved watching these trees as they pass through the seasons from the deep green of summer, through the beautiful yellow of Autumn, the bare beauty of winter and the gorgeous lime green of Spring!
But it doesnt end there....The amazing shapes of the trees and branches, alone, absolutely mystify.
Seeing scenes like this always send my imagination into high speed. Thus, the title I chose for this post. It's as if someone could walk through the "curtains" of the trees abd become forever entrapped in the beauty!
Thank you for any comments that you have ;-) .

that precise moment that mastering an image becomes a great physical and intellectual joy."

- 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:

ALWAYS FEEL YOUR SOUL....
HONOR THE MAGIC IN YOUR HEART"
