Cotton candy

I just adore this tree, with it's gracefully curving trunk and mass of little silvery leaves, like candy floss. It's some kind of willow, I think - probably salix alba. It grows beside the canal in the grounds of Saltaire's church. I've tried to photograph it many times and never come close to capturing its ethereal beauty. This picture does it some justice, I feel.


  1. I have experienced willows on the River Great Ouse. When the wind sighs through the leaves one thinks one is on a ship at sea.
