Beautiful Tree

I have no idea what this tree is but it just looked amazing. I've done nothing to this picture and my little camera has captured how it lookd pretty well. In the low hazy sunlight it just looked like a painting.

This really does look like a painting with the muted colors and contrasts.

Bill Phillips: Thanks Martin.
Some sort of willow, I expect Bill. Looks wonderful though
Bill Phillips: Thanks Chris, yes it could well be a willow.
I agree with Chris, it looks willow-like. Delightful, painterly photograph. (:o)

I know someone who would also say it's a poem! smile
Bill Phillips: Th only poem that springs to mind is:
I think that I will never see
a billboard lovely as a tree
in fact unless the billboards fall
I'll never see a tree at all

With apologies to Ogden Nash is I haven't got it quite right!

Bill Phillips: Indeed Ginnie. That's an interesting site, I'm going to bookmark it for future reference.
