03-04-10 Tentacles

    This isn't the only shot of this tree that I've posted in this blog. But when I was looking through my collection, this one jumped out at me. The brilliance of the back-lit red leaves of this Japanese maple gets your attention. But what I like about this tree is the snake-like curves of the tree branches.

02-18-10 A Single Tree

This is a quintessential South Dakota sunrise: a single tree and an expanse of prairie pasture. The tree and the sunrise are commonplace; but the clouds aren't. On this particular morning, I was struck by texture of the clouds and how there was a single band of sunlight along the horizon. Light like this is short lived. Usually, you can't say, "That's pretty - I'll go get my camera." By the time you have your camera, even if it is only minutes later, the moment has passed.

02-03-10 A Roman Park

This is an early morning shot of a back lit tree in the Borghese Gardens in Rome. There is something prehistoric-looking in these leaves. I don't know what kind of tree this is but it could be a relative of the locust, which grows in some places in South Dakota.

07-09-09 Towering, Textured Tree

This is a tree that lives in the park in front of the Colorado state capitol building. I like the apparently random nature of the lines and angles in a tree. But in this photo, I also like the texture of the bark.
