Ceiling

This year I have decided to try and participate in the weekly photo challenge set by Cathy, Sandra, Melissa and Jane – I came across it via Cathy’s blog.  I like the idea that they have published the list of weekly challenges at the start of the year so lots of time to ponder.

Anyway, this week’s theme is ‘Ceiling’ and my immediate reaction was to post the above photograph.  I take few pictures of interiors unless I am in some historic building and to be honest I am happier when I am outside.  I have developed a bit of a thing over the last year of taking photographs looking up through tree canopies, I love the light play especially through fresh spring or autumn leaves.  Of course this photograph is a winter’s scene but still the contrast of the bright blue sky last weekend and the trees’ silhouettes was enough to stop me on my walk to try and capture it.

As this blog is primarily a gardening blog I think a ceiling of trees is very apt.  Now to ponder next week’s theme of card!

    Love your take on the concept of a ceiling. It and your lovely photo made me smile. 🙂

  2. Perfect! Thank you so much for your entry Helen. It is lovely to have you along with us this year! Fun to use the prompts in conjunction with your own blog theme – I’m really looking forward to seeing where each one takes you.

    I love the tracery of these winter celings too, Helen. Well captured

  5. Very apposite – and very striking!

  6. Hi Helen! This is wonderful. You and Denis both went with outdoor photos and they are my favourites, being a nature girl at heart 🙂 I should mention that I did not help compile this year’s photo list. Though I appreciate your intention, it wouldn’t be fair to share the credit with the others. Have a great week and I look forward to seeing more of your lovely pictures throughout the challenge. Cheers, Melissa
