Thursday Challenge: Trees -

"Trees I"
manipulated digital photograph by Mick Mather
The theme is trees at Thursday Challenge this week. I should say, and any who've followed this blog for any length of time can agree, I have plenty of images from which to choose for this topic. Not wanting to drift too far into the obvious, it occurred to me that a recent photograph taken in the living room - of some interesting patterns of light - also features an old photograph of mine. Standing in a cheap, paper frame just beyond a most interesting floral candle, is an old shed. It sits, perched beyond the crest of a hill, among a small stand of mature, experienced oaks. Their position and the battered, well used demeanor of the shed gave up one of my favorite double entendre titles: "Over the Hill".

Two in one, the candle is almost like a blossoming forest and the photo behind goes even deeper into the theme.

Here's a suitable song by the Finnish band Nightwish.

John:
It's funny you say that because the photo was taken at exactly that point in time. :)

I was thinking something like this but couldn't quite figure out the right way to express it. You've done it perfectly ... thank you Susu! :)

I like both of your pictures. The old barn under the trees is one I have a feeling of having already seen, it gives me a nice familiar feeling, and the second one withthe candle is a great composition. Have a nice weekend.

Thanks, Hélène ... I often say that evoking such feelings is the artists reward whenever it happens. :)
