MORNING SUN THROUGH THE ROWAN TREE

_20170831_090456

We have a number of Rowan trees, or Mountain Ash, in our garden. I love their shape, their autumn berries – which are swiftly gobbled by the birds – and the reminder of wonderful holidays in the Lake District where the Rowans grow in abundance.

Here, I managed to catch the berries with the sun directly behind them, no special filters, just a sparkle of light.

WOODLAND PATH

I love woodland and the way the trees mark the seasons. It’s Spring, the beech trees have bright, lime-green. soft-to-the-touch leaves that gently filter the light rather than blocking it out. And the woodland flowers make their one-time bid to bloom and set seed before the canopy thickens up for the summer.
