[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This picture was taken after the first snow fall in November at Webster Falls Park near Hamilton, Ontario.

There are more than 50 species of willow throughout Canada, many of which grow as shrubs. The bark of willow trees produces salicin, the active ingredient in aspirin. The leaves of willows are distinguishable from all other Canadian broadleaves. In general their leaves are long and narrow, are pointed at both ends, and have short petioles (leaf-stalks) in comparison to the length of leaf-blades. We present a generic silhouette of a willow tree along with a list of 23 species names and accompanying botanical authorities.

Já comentei que foto de árvores é um dos meus fracos... eu gostei desta. Muito bem excecutada. Um céu bonito. Bom contraste e boas cores.

I already commented on that picture of trees is one of my weak ones... I liked this. Very well executed. A beautiful sky. Good contrast and good colors.

Great hibernal landscape.
The central placement of the subject, although generaly is to be avoided, works OK here, giving to this old tree a sense of solitude and also of dominance.
Beautiful cold colours, broken by the yellow in the tree.

Regards, Petru

Nice capture Sky
Early morning rush, well worth the big smiley.
Thanks for posting, have a good week.

Hi, Sky.
Nice landscape. Good exposure. Well composed. A little bit soft, but maybe it's even good here.

Hi Sky
Lovely winterscape with this dominant willow tree central to the picture. The line formed by the treetops are almost lying on the 1/3 axis giving the willow enough space to reach into the lovely azure sky.
Colours are well saturated and pleasing, while the exposure and the DOF were well handled.
Good work Sky and TFS.
Regards
Loot

hi sky,
that´s a real nice shot! :-)
the weeping willow reminds me of the
nasty tree in the harry potter movies. *g*
there is a site in switzerland where you
can send in trees and if you´re lucky
win 50 swiss francs each month.
(www.pefi.ch)
this could be a winner!
take care,
thor.

Hi Sky...
Beautiful old tree!
Seems like nature was surprised by the first snow, the colours are still kind of green...
Beautiful blue sky, lovely composition!
Greetings,
