The Waning Barren Landscape

I thought I had better get a few of the last “late Winter / pre-Spring” pictures posted. Here’s one I took a few weeks ago at the end of March. Today, when I search for interesting moments to photograph the trees each have a subtle hue of light green. Not long ago they were just dead lifeless sticks, waiting for Mother Nature’s resurrecting kiss. Pictures of dead trees are not high on people’s favorites lists, but the angle of the horizon plus the drama in the sky made me think the scene had potential. It gave me the feeling of weather pushing into the picture by a hidden force. The sky seems so alive, while beneath appears so dead.
