Spring…so full of surprise, and gentle reminders that warmth, light, and more sun are on their way.
It’s so easy to denounce the dark season, succumbing to it’s gloom. One’s mind tends to become murky and forget the wonder that spring brings.
But then, gradually the transition from cold to warm, from dark to light, from barren to fertile…there’s one, and then there are many. Blossoms let us know that we can always begin anew.
Today I took some images of a fantastic tree at Anacortes. The tree is weathered, full of detail and movements. The sun was very bright, both accenting some of the branches on the tree, as well as causing severe shadows on the dark side of the tree. I wanted to capture the light on the branches, and the detail of the wood.
I used both my 24mm and my 105mm on the Nikon D700.
