It’s the middle of winter and my last few posts have featured some pretty dreary tones.  I thought it was time for some color so I did a little browsing and found this gem waiting on my hard drive since last spring.

These leaves, photographed in the woods of Northeast Wisconsin (near my home), were early spring sprouts; debuting last April. The way the sunlight illuminates them, it reminded me of colorful party lights strung though the trees.

I’ve been fiddling with my images lately.  (You might have noticed yesterday’s post – Morning Friends)

This image was originally posted last April (see Spring’s Serenade).  When I first posted it I shared it with some friends and mentioned I thought it would be a perfect image for a textured effect.  Well, I finally got around to trying one on.

It changes the feel of the bright, vivid original image.  You should look at both and see which you prefer.

Spring’s Serenade

According to Wikipedia… In music, a serenade (or sometimes serenata) is a musical composition, and/or performance, in someone’s honor. Serenades are typically calm, light music.

The warm background tones, combined with the vivid color of spring’s first emerging leaves, really appeals to me.  It has a light and airy feel that reminds me of a classical music composition.

These are truly the first leaves of spring, photographed on a walk through some woods near my home.  I posted another image from this same walk entitled: The Scarlet of Spring.

Clicking on the image will bring up a larger version.

The Scarlet of Spring

We went for a walk along a trail through woods and farm fields.  The very first signs of spring were bursting forth.  This is the twig of a budding tree.

The unique qualities of this image were created by the camera and nature, itself.  Behind the sprouting twig was a river with sunlight sparkling off the ripples, through the leafless trees on the bank.  I was using a 300mm lens, so everything beyond the twig was blurred.

If you look closely, you can see a small bug resting on the left side of the top leaf.
