LEAFLESS


A gray leafless day in Rocklin, California. This was a few days ago. Today the sun has come out and all's right with the world.
I really like how this one looks enlarged. The seed balls show up well.

much as i love lush trees, i love these dark, mangled silhouettes of leafless trees too...what's there not to love in nature? :)

I do like being able to see the shapes of trees without leaves. Those are cool seeds. Is this a sycamore/plane tree?

I'm ready for sun myself!

ruth said...

Thanks for telling me in your comment at Flying that this is likely a sycamore, one of my favorites!

The photo is interesting and it really looks more beautiful when it is enlarged. The seed balls are beautiful decoration on the leafless branches.

Ah....you know I am a huge lover of trees! This one is FANTASTIC! There is something about a gray day and a tree silhouette that makes my heart sing! :)

the branches lend the tree such a distinct and beautiful shape ...and the artistry can only be seen when the tree is bare... nice shot....

I remember when my husband was alive, this was when he asked me to take photos of trees. He was an artist and he wanted to make sure of the proper way that certain trees were formed and growing and this is the best time to find out. Lovely pic.
