A Little Twisted

I cancelled a photo walk this afternoon so I could be responsible and study.  However, I still really wanted to take a picture of something

This twisty little tree is just outside my patio door.   The water droplets adorned it quite beautifully and quickly became my subject of choice.  The shallow DOF created sort of a smokey quality in the movement of the background branches which I kind of like.  

I hope everyone has had a great weekend, and I hope to get back to visiting my favorite blogs on a regular basis soon!

  1. This photograph is beautiful. Something that you could definately hang on your wall. I love it when something beautiful is right outside your door. 🙂

    Looks like you didn’t have to walk very far to capture this pretty scene. 🙂 Love the dof and softness of this image.

    This is very beautiful, it’s just the perfect amount of softness… if that makes sense!

  4. Hi Jolene, great image. Love the reflections in the water droplets. Ironic that you ended up taking pictures that day. 😉 -Kim

    1. Thank you, Kim! Must make time to do what we love, even if it takes us away from what we should be doing (i.e. studying…lol).

    It’s a good shot. I understand the itch – I wasn’t able to get out shooting all weekend and I must… photograph… something… today…. even if it is a grugly (gray and ugly) day out there.

    1. I like the term grugly! I may have to use that one myself!

    I really like this–looks very artistic. I also LOVE the colours of your blog.

    1. Thanks, Heather – the colors remind me of Ireland, so I probably won’t part with them for a while. 🙂

  7. Nice bokeh, love the detail in the centre droplet! Cool colours too, nice find Jolene!

    1. Thanks, David…sorry about having to cancel the walk, but looking forward to next week. 🙂
