[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Here we are , its almost June and I'm still waiting for spring. Oh I know on the calender it says its spring but the weather sure isn't spring like. My daffodils have come and gone the grass is green but for the past 2 weeks I think I've seen the sun for about 2 hours! Tonight we have another frost alert too. Hoping our flowers make it through the night!

This photo was taken behind my daughters new house. I love their view of the mountains ( Appalachians) converted from color to Black and White to fit my mood!

Hope your day or evening is wonderful...

Hello Donna!

We a frost warning for tonight here too..... You are not alone awaiting for Spring ... Cool B&W conversion. You should ask the young man of the house , to take away this, what seems to be, a broken branch , before it fells down on somebody's head (LOL!)

Image well composed, the branches are contrasting well against the dull sky.
PS. no more :) for today.

Your comp is really nice here Donna. I wish the sky was a little less glarey. I see you are in the trees again! **hmpphh!!! I would suggest a F11 or higher for shots like this. Make sure the sun is behind you. Now, get outta da trees!!

très beau noir et blanc joliment encadré

Hi Donna
We are leaving spring here and hugging hot summer and you are still waiting! Here you've applied B/W mode which is totally match with this shot.
Sadness feeling, fragment branches, nice composition.

Hi Donna
It does look cold and bleak - sorry about your spring - it's now winter down under... But I've still got roses growing...
I love the B&W look of this - it does look sad
