looking back over last month's photographs
seeking a photo-heart connection

 it's hard to select just one

i love

the delicate curves of tree branches


trees, silhouetted against the late afternoon sky


tiny young trees
surrounded
by sturdy big trees 
that have learned to survive the harsh winters 
 

big skies and wide open spaces


and winter's late afternoon light
 

but finally, I choose
this one


a photograph taken at my favourite late afternoon time,
in one of my favourite places
in this city that I love

the strong dark branches of the trees 
contrasting with the pure white snow
silhouetted against the milky blue sky
and the weak light of the late afternoon sun

it's a quiet time
wide open space
no others around

i can be
alone 
as i explore
and breathe in
the beauty of this place

  1. I scrolled down your first photographs to discover the one you had chosen for your photo-heart connection. I agree that late afternoon is a wonderful time to be outside to enjoy nature. The tree silhouettes look so beautiful against the blue of the sky and I see a friendly bench behind a tree in the background! What a lovely place to be!

  3. Oh boy! You are a photographer after my own heart! I like the top one best with the red and the curves ... Of course the bottom one is wonderful, too! I see we both love trees--especially the skeletal views in winter. Cheers!
