The Tree On The Road Home

arroyo seco tree
Sometimes the image is about what I drive by on my way home. The subject captivated me … it has done so since 2006 when I made some images of this tree … I pulled over this time to explore the scene. I liked the simplicity of the tree illuminated by a shaft of light with a stroke of light on the foreground grasses. Within half a minute of this image the light was gone. Upon reflection, it was a moment of splendid respite, for me to pause and take in the nature around me as I headed home.

Basking in the Sunlight

Basking in the sunlight. I think a more appropriate title might be “The End Of Autumn Sonata”, the last notes played before the winter sets in and the dancing leaves of autumn are silenced. As I stare out of my window I relish the last few notes dancing in the elm tree. Hushed now, a veil of frost descends and the fourth movement begins with the more sombre tones of the wind, in the winter trees. Thanks for looking. Gelm leaves basking in the Sunlight san cristobal
