Thank you :)

And yes, green! Finally!

I love, love, love the first photo - the spotlight sun but not too much glare. Saved from being scary and stark by the hint of green; baby leaves bringing new clothes to naked trees. Really like the single, long, horizontal sausage cloud.

Thank you so much!

I must confess though that I cheated a bit: I turned the photo upside down, and what you see is actually a reflection in the water (the same water as in photo #3, but a little further on). The bit of green at the top is the ground I am standing on and the "sausage cloud" is a trail left by an airplane. :)

Wow, your little trickery made for an excellent photo - got any more upside down ones? :D

I remembered one or two I had made ages ago, so I went through my archives and found them, but the effect was nowhere near as nice as with this photo. (I never posted them.)

Good angle on the second shot - strong definition between foreground, middle ground and background. But I find this picture sort of scary because...what is that white thing on the right, just hidden (or coming out!) from behind the hedge?

And the little tree on the right - did it get a crew cut? Looks like a tiki thingy!

Hee! I was intrigued by the white thing too. When I went back to the park last Monday I discovered it was a parasol covered in a sheet. (Perhaps pretending to be a ghost?)

Yes, I think it may be a recently pollarded willow. They rather like pollard willows there (see my post of today).

That was my first thought! XD

I kind of like the muddy green of the river in the last picture - life water full of nutrient matter, health food drink for the trees. Hmm, the red and white warning fence gives me pause...river serpent habitat?

And willows! I love weeping willows!

Yes, anyone who falls in is devoured! Hence the weeping willows.

BTW, I am glad that not all trees are evil in your view. (And you even have trees in your icon!)

Most trees are good, but each has its dark side. Many are schizophrenic, acquiring new personalities with each rebirth during Spring. A clue to their state of goodness is by what type of birds and animals dwell in them, and how many. A tree crowded with happy little sparrows is a kindly, nurturing type. Squirrels are the best judge of a tree's nature. Listen to the squirrels.

These are just beautiful compositions and photographs! I love them all.
