Having just completed a June trees theme for my 365 project, I already had plenty of choices for this week’s Sunday Stills. This is my month’s calendar view.
Under the trees I also found:
I discovered rainbows, reflections and sunsets.
Under the trees throughout the seasons, I find the new growth of spring green and blossoms, the silhouetted sunlight of summer. the dappled shade lighting the fallen autumn leaves and the skeletal winter trees revealing their intricate branching structures. I had a play with making a composite of autumn leaves and a frosty winter. Maybe next time I will do all seasons!
I love that trees have so many different textures and forms in their branches and trunks. Winter when the trees are leafless is a good time to appreciate the intricate branch patterns normally hidden within the leaves. Moss and lichen cluster with wood ear fungus to decorate the barren trees.
I love to wander between the trees along hidden forest pathways, and beside the lakes, beaches and rivers. I am in my happy place (as long as I have my camera along for the walk}
Oh yes – do I have plenty of sunsets and maybe a sunrise?
I’m not so great at getting up early enough to capture sunrises. We cruised into Gothenburg harbour in the early morning just as the sun had risen enough to hide behind the clouds. Does that count as a sunrise?
Later that week, we saw glorious sunsets over the Southern archipelago.
The West Coast is a great place to watch the sunset.
Sunsets are such peaceful time of the day to enjoy some solitude.
And then there are the fabulous sunsets I see out my window or through the trees.
This winter month I am just looking for a few hours of sunshine each day – just a few hours and perhaps a lovely sunset.
