Colour, Patterns and Reflections

Sunday, February 22nd 2015

Strong winds have caused damage to some of our trees and these have had to be felled.  It does not take long for animals to get used to the changes around them.  A squirrel left the shell of a Hazel nut on the cut trunk.

Using a chain saw is a skill and it is amazing to watch as a tree is carefully brought down.  On this cut trunk the patterns left by the blade can be seen.

Water Plantain grows in several ponds and flowers in the summer.   Now as winter comes to an end the branching seed heads can easily be seen.

With a little cropping of a photograph the reflections made by the vegetation being gently blown by the breeze, makes a delightful pattern.

I really love these photos, especually the one of the branching seedheads in the sunlight. I often slip away from the group of volunteering during many a Foxglove morning to take photos of similar subjects to then use in my artwork. Sunlight reflecting on water, ice, snow, colours in nature.
