It started as a 366 – now a regular Photoblog- just for the love of taking photos and sharing them.
gorgeous colours. I love the shape of the curl of bark at the bottom
Thnaks Caroline.. that’s what I wanted to capture
Great subject, great shot! The simplest things in nature are absolutely astounding, especially close up. Taking the time to get close and observe is too often a missed opportunity. (Feeling that a lot more now that I’m working 4 jobs!)
FOUR Jobs !!!! are you saving to come visit me !
Four part-time jobs…and yes! travel is in the 5-year vision. 😉
Oh wow – fantastically beautiful image, Helen – that has to be up there with your best! Its in essentially 4 parts, isn’t it. There’s the black background, which is separated from the 2nd element, the shadowed white bark of the tree, by the thin by searingly white lit edge, the third element.
And lastly there are all of these explosive curlings in wonderfully lit shades of orange – much of the picture’s success lies in the colour and luminosity differences between those curlings and the other 3 elements. Good stuff! Adrian
Thanks for these comments Adrian as I am very pleased with this image.. obviously it’s back lit by the sun and I took it using tripod and 55-300mm lens and decided on low key to black out the background..
My favourite tree 🙂
Thanks Ed and welcome to my blog.. I hope you’ll take a look around while you’re here 🙂 .. Birches are such lovely trees aren’t they..
That is SO pretty!
Thanks Tilly.. appreciate it
Wonderful. That little curl at the bottom-ahh
It has the ahh factor alright Elena!
This is a truly fine photo. There are so many delightful contrasts: dark against light; straight lines v curves; varying textures. I particularly like the ‘exploitation’ of backlighting to create the transparent amber glow and to define the shapes. And you have balanced these elements beautifully in the composition. It really is a smasher!!
Aww Louis thank you so much for your encouraging comments. So glad that you like it.
Very apeeling! : )
And beautiful lighting, Helen.
haha.. nice one Karen 🙂
