Hey Harriet said...

Exquisite! You've composed this shot so beautifully. The Jacaranda is a magical tree. I'm fortunate to have many growing around me.

Thanks so much for joining in Shadow Shot Sunday!

Wow! Great picture.

Thar is worth framing, and hanging on the wall.

And a tree I've never heard of.

Cheers!

Stunning! It stirs your imagination. I see a man coming home after beeing away for several years. It's springtime and he walks with joy in his heart because he will soon embrace his family again.

I forgot. Yes it's ice against the rock in my photo.

That's a really beautiful scene. I think that the shadows and the man walking really add to it. Very nice selection! Thanks for the visit.

Love this photo! We used to live on a street where the trees on either side met in a canopy that covered the road. It was so beautiful!!
