This week’s challenge from Sherene at Print Sense Photography is “Things are looking up”. For full details, check out her post here.
My entry has a double message; This photo has been taken with me looking up into the top of the willow tree and looking through to the sky; the second meaning is that things are looking up because spring is coming and the trees are finally coming to life. I love willow trees for the way they slowly change colour from sandy brown, through to pale green as the buds start to swell, to vivid green as the buds start to burst, and then the emerald leaves when they have reached full growth. Their long fronds make patterns in the air as they are blown by the wind – they almost seem to dance. I just love it all. (I have posted about willows before. Check the related articles list below.)
Well, enjoy my photo for this challenge.
