Four days ago we had a beautiful and sunny Wednesday morning. The sun was shining through the trees in the yard and begging me to come out and take a few photos. Always heed the call when it comes over you.
I really love the color of our Coral Bark Japanese Maple tree and the way the color contrasts with the tan colored bricks of our house. I played with the focus on my featured image for this closeup so that the branches in front were out of focus along with the bricks in the background, leaving only a very narrow depth of field near the center of the tree.
Here is a shot from a different angle with more of the tree included:
Being the middle of our winter season, most of our trees are bare of their leaves. I loved the beautiful blue sky showing through the empty branches:
And finally, a tree seen as a shadow on our front lawn.
Let me know what you think of my little photography experiments.
