Recent Work: Willow Tree in Winter

Here is a photograph that I made last weekend. I went out on a gray day, as I discussed in my previous post. I photographed a number of trees, thinking about the lines, and realizing that the tones available were basically black-and-white. When I saw this willow, my eye was immediately drawn to the colour of the tree, and the red of the bush at the foot of the tree -- the colours looked brilliant compared with the rest of the landscape. I still like the lines and form of the tree with it's grizzled bark, and the lines of the bush, but the splash of colour was more than welcome in the dull winter light.
