Shadow Shots: Sweet Willow


This massive old willow casts shifting shadows as its branches dance in the wind. It's located at TreeMendous Fruit farm in Michigan, and it provided a welcome spot to rest a bit after apple picking last weekend.

What a gorgeous tree and shadows. Can see lovely fall colours in the background - love this time of year.

This willow is massive - yet its flowing locks cascade like a waterfall rushing downhill. A pretty and perfect place for a respite fom hours of apple picking...

My favorite kind of tree, especially when the shadows offer such refreshing shade.

Willows have a special romance for me. Love this play of light and shadow round this one.

That tree is KING (or, better still QUEEN)! Holding court over us mere mortals.
