A hazy shade of winter... by cricketumpire A hazy shade of winter... by cricketumpire
Time, time, time, see what's become of me
While I looked around
For my possibilities
I was so hard to please
But look around, leaves are brown
And the sky is a hazy shade of winter...

Simon And Garfunkel

Simon and Garfunkel could have written those lyrics for this picture.  It's a wonderful capture!

Thank you so much - but the lyrics definitely came first. You're right though, the combination matches! :huggle:

The leaves have gone but apart from that bit the lyrics and title worked well.
Thank you for the compliments :hug:

You are so right about the right place at the right time. I had missed a beautiful misty but sunlit shot at this location the day before on the way to blood doning - I didn't take my camera! So I returned the next morning when the weather conditions almost repeated themselves and got this one instead. However my intended shot was not as good as it would have been. The lighting was significantly different with no sunlight. (Check out - "Home for the new year..." - same tree.) 
Moral - always take your camera and grab your luck with both hands when offered - but so glad you liked this one Zlata! Ooooh

Wow - thanks for that comment! I do like this photograph and I wouldn't change it but I do regret missing the shot on the previous day. It was with the tree covered in ice crystals, in full but misty sunlight. The whole tree glowed and sparkled beautifully, almost like a Christmas tree with a mass of white lights. However, the tree is still there, so I'll wait and hope for a second chance next winter... :hug:

Thanks so much - it's one of my favourite songs and seemed to fit the photograph well as a title (except for the reference to brown leaves!) Singing

Nice job capturing this! :'D I like the contrast between the tree and the foreground and the haze and the background. And the tree somewhat seems to be trying to frame the photo ;P

Trees have their own spirits as seen in mythology and even Lord of the Rings. This one is obviously an extrovert! :lol: Thanks for the compliments!

I've noticed a spelling mistake. Contract should be contrast. But I guess you understood.

I was too slow to notice, I had read it as contrast without noticing. Sometimes it's best to keep quite! :laughing: Looking forward to you visiting my page again. :huggle:
