Spring

This is another attempt to catch a spring sky - the leaves on the (mostly non-native) street and park trees are rushing from the buds.

By being under this oak I hoped to capture both the patchwork nature of the leaves and the patchwork nature of a spring sky.  I think I could have done with a little more blue!  But there is only so much you on the way to lunch!




You can find more sky shots at Sky Watch Friday.

As summer wanes here in the States, I've been looking up, too, trying to savor the moment.

If you look at the first one long enough it begins to take on a whole different view. It works.

Wonderful captures, Stewart! I love the "looking up" through the fresh, new leaves! Definitely a glimpse of spring!! Hope you have a great week!

I like through the tree shots, these are splendid!

HI Stewart What a web of branches with the sky peeping though. By the way, everything on blog is sorted today without any intervention!!!

Spring skies are peeping through! I love the angle (I'd probably trip over my feet if I tried it!)

Shey said...

Love the patterns of the branches and leaves too. By the way, you got awesome shots of the straw-necked ibis. Very cool!

Spring is a favorite time for me when the trees are starting to bud.

Still very nice to see nature exploding like this in the spring.
Nice!
