From one Tree to Another? (Weekend Reflections # 65)

I wonder if the leaves thought they were going home. I'm not a poet but if I were I'd write a poem about this. :)

Oh ! Les arbres ont encore leurs feuilles chez toi ! Excellent : technique et poésie sont au rendez-vous !

Fabien said...

This vew is superb and the effect really surprising. I like much, cheer

Sistertex said...

Very nice capture....the reflection of the tree and the leaves settled on the ground...kind of 'not giving up thee ghost' type of thing. May not be on the tree, but even on the ground are still on the tree. I probably would have walked right passed. Thanks for sharing a last bit of fall, you sure won't find that around here right now.

Happy Holidays!

Rajesh said...

Fantastic capture.

JM said...

It's an upside down Christmas tree! Beautiful!

Malyss said...

You're maybe not a poet with words, but you're surely a poet with pictures!
This shot is very clever and romantic!

Lew said...

Excellent reflection! Your photography jumped a few notches higher during your trip to Europe!

As for the poem about this image: maybe somthing about returning to one's roots?

Carletta said...

There's pure poetry in the image alone!
This is AWESOME James - it really is!

Woody said...

Very clever!

Who needs a poet when we have such a good photographer as you. Keep on clicking.

Karen said...

Wow, fantabulous capture James. The photo is the poem.

That's a very clever photo. Like Sistertex, I'd probably have gone past without noticing the potential for a photo.

Leovi said...

Some beautiful reflections of the very suggestive tree with leaves on water

Alexa said...

Agree with the rest—the photo itself is poetry enough.
Just beautiful, James!

Stickup Artist said...

OH, that is just brilliant! The reflection of the bare tree with it's actual fallen leaves seeming to fill up the reflected branches. So multi-dimensional. Great eye!

Pat Tillett said...

LOVE IT!

Naquillity said...

gospelwriter said...

What an awesome image! And I think the photo by itself is poetry - even without words... You obviously have a poet's eye. :)

Joanne said...

That is beautiful:)

Le Journal de Chrys said...

Cette photo est particulièrement réussie: entre reflets et réalité, entre reflets de l'arbre et feuilles tombées, entre eau source de vie et feuilles mortes..... Une photographie très "parlante"!!!!

Cildemer said...

Great capture! So beautiful and so artistic!
Thanks for sharing;o)

Have a great weekend, James****

'Tsuki said...

This one made me smile... I didn't have to read your comment to get what you intended here : it is true, that picture is worth thousands of worlds... And it is acutally a universal language.

Louis la Vache said...

Olivier said...

Wouahh magnifique reflet, belle composition

Sar@h said...

It's look like a child's drawing.

Good capture !

Tash said...

fallen stars leave
branches bare to reach
united again in reflected harmony

Owen said...

Hey James, where you say you're not a poet... I beg to differ... poetry can be visual too, and at that form of poetry you are a rising star... do continue, you are on the path to purity of image... a pleasure to regard.

Fred Miller said...

That is like re-incarnation or something. Those leaves have entered a new cycle of life. It's not even in a new dimension. It's right here. Right now.

Cheryl said...

Perfect!

RuneE said...

They look as if they belonged there!

Rosadimaggio63 said...

Hi :)
tantissimi auguri di Felice Natale a te e alla tua famiglia.
Myriam

How about..

Nature's Fashion Show

The show will begin soon
Please take a seat
You'll want a sweater
We've turned down the heat
We do this each year
And it's quite spectacular
We'll soon see our models
In all their splendor
First our lovely models
Come out in green
The prettiest shades of
emerald you've seen
Then slowly the colors
Become yellow then gold
As the weather changes
From warm to cold
Then gold warms to orange
Red to burgundy
The most glorious colors
You ever could see
As the weather becomes
Bitter and cold
Our ladies become
Surprisingly bold
They drop their costumes
To the ground
Shades of orange and red
Turn to brown
The once lovely leaves
Feed our soil
And we wrap our ladies
In shimmering foil.

God bless and Merry Christmas!

I love to write poetry but am no where near as good at photography as you. :-)
