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.

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