You've managed to make the grey sky look gorgeous!

This willow looks exactly the opposite of weeping. It looks wildly alive, like it is electrified, raising its branches to heaven. Such a special photo!

Like black chantilly lace.
And I agree: it doesn't strike me as a tearful tree :-)

Hmmm, I apologize if this is a repeat post. I accidentally closed my browser before I was done. Anywho...the branches seem to stretch outward toward everything, which is totally contrasting to most Weeping Willows I have seen that dangle toward the ground. Great shot! Now GFC following....;)

@ Dina, jo-hanna, Cathy: Everything depends on the camera angle, I was directly under the tree :)

Whenever I see a willow tree I think of the sculpture of a willow tree in the courtyard of the synagogue in Budapest. Each leaf is a sliver of metal on which is engraved the name of a victim of the Hungarian holocaust. It is very moving.

You've definitely managed to change the appearance from 'weeping' to 'shocked' :) just by the angle Karl. Nice work!

Looks like those branches were etched into the sky. Super shot.

Brrr.....

A very vivid, dynamic shot, Karl. It's a different angle than what we'd usually see in a tree, and it works very well.

Superb image, bravo Karl!

Jack said...

You gave this a wonderful perspective, to make an otherwise plain shot a memorable one.

Stunning shot, Karl - well seen!
