Of walls and willows

This willow tree is growing just below the spillway of the dam, on the Sand River in the Elands River Valley

WOW! Awesome picture! Really, I am so impressed with this breath taking photo! Very well done!

PS: Does Felicity liked my cats photos? (LOL) (Sorry, I don't know if I wrote correctly that phrase...)

Sonia, thanks for the comment. So Far Felicity is just being a pest when I blog. She managed to delete three emails running over my key board. Give a few more weeks and I am sure she will be an accomplished blogger

Super pic, right now it's -45c here, I see it's 22c there, I would be happy with -22c right now,lol.

Andrea said...

Wow, beautiful picture. Love it, love it, love it!

Max-e said...

Hi Bob, -45C ouch. That is colder than my freezer. I must say that the African climate suits me just fine. I do not think I would survive in that climate. Btw at those temperatures does dropping to -22C make a difference

Max-e said...

Glad you enjoyed it Andres. It is a really beautiful and remote area

I like your framing of the picture Max. Very nice "construction" of the green against the white and the vertical lines to the horizontals. Very nice picture!

I've always heard that willow trees like to have "wet feet" so I guess this one is very happy.

An "effect-full" composition!

That photo made me audibly **sigh**

Beautiful, beautiful shot!

Laughed at Felicity deleting your e-mails - our big softie, who looks like your Ferguson, did the same to me recently.

Hi Max
What a great backdrop that is..

Anna said...

Max-e, so we got something in common, we have those here, as a matter of fact many of those here. Great photo, Anna :)

Max-e oh yes, -22c feels very cold, -45 feels very cold but you feel if you stay out too long you will die,lol, It is a very bitting cold and you actually start to hurt.
