“There is only you and your camera. The limitations in your photography are in yourself, for what we see is what we are.” Photographer Ernst Haas (1921 – 1986).
I took my camera out on a late December afternoon, away from the madness of the post Christmas sales. There appeared to be nothing worth shooting; no glorious sunset, no fabulous rainbow, no amazing light turning an ordinary scene into something extraordinary. But I wanted to get some shots. These are some of the results.
Trees in Winter
I love to see in winter
Bare branches held up high
In lovely, lacy patterns
Against a cloudy sky.
I learned this poem in primary school and it comes to mind whenever I take a winter walk and see the trees stretching their branches to the sky.
