Awake and dreaming

Here's a fun one.... I got up and drew back the bedroom curtains the other morning, and noticed the early sun backlighting the tree across the road. It looked so pretty, its leaves just beginning to be tipped with gold, that I snapped it with my iPhone and then spent a happy five minutes playing with some of the photo apps I have. It was gorgeous, though it didn't glow in real life quite as much as this finished image suggests. I think, however, that sometimes it's OK to play around with photos. It's a creative endeavour in just the same way as anything else. Two minutes later and the sun had moved round and the richness was lost - so it's good to have captured and made the most of it.


  1. A magic piece of photo art. My mum had a abstract art painting that looked similar.Well done!

  2. What a fabulous picture , so romantic and powerful !

  3. Oh, that is gorgeous...so magical! Aren't you glad you didn't miss it?
