Twig

Branching Out

Spring, Leaf, Leaves, Green, Macro
One of my favorite spring images are the new, delicate leaves that sprout from  trees emerging from their winter dormancy.

As I walk through the woods I’m always scanning my surroundings for something that catches my eye.  This sprig was captured by the late afternoon sunlight and highlighted by a back-light of filtering through the trees, making the very common uncommonly interesting.  (At least to me.) It was just another twig among millions that caught my eye.

The Early Stretch

Spring, Green, Leaves, Twig, Branch, Growth

One of the glories of spring is “new growth” – as flowers bud and leaves sprout in the woodlands. This is a twig bursting forth with new life; awakening from its deep, winter slumber.

A lot of my images are captured on hikes through the woods with my wife. When we hike, you can bet my camera is with me. I often stop in mid-stop and begin focusing on something that would seem painfully plain and ordinary to most people. In these moments, something has caught my eye and sparked my imagination. I see some shape or texture or exquisite light that I want to save – if possible. (It’s not always possible.)

Often the greatest challenge in photography is being able to capture, with a camera, what my eye sees. Sure, you can snap a photo of a scene or object, but the camera has a difficult time of capturing the essence and full spectrum of beauty our eyes can perceive. (With, no doubt, some artistic enhancement provided by the filter of our own soul.)

Let’s be honest. This is an image of a simple, ordinary twig. But there is something about the warm glow of late afternoon light that is revealing the texture of the leaves…something about the early stage and directional flow of the leaves. To me, this simple twig has a seductive quality to it. I’m glad I stopped to capture it.

Color Coordination – Autumn Leaves

Fall Colors, Autumn Leaves, Bright Leaves, Colorful Twig

A recent walk though some woods provided a lot of fall color.  On this trip, I focused on the small picture – close-up images of colorful leaves.

This caught my eye because of the combination of red and green against the dark background.

It seemed the smaller leaves were resisting the change. A youthful rebellion.

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.
