The Old Catalpa
The deep angle of this brilliant sun as it illuminates the landscape bare of leaves can make the world we know look new and strange. This friendly streamside catalpa, normally covered with huge languid heart-shaped leaves reveals a somewhat human structure and a dense network of tiny branches looking vaguely gothic as the sunlight wraps itself around each twig. In the background is a footbridge and a limestone cliff wall. The colors in this photo are exactly as the camera recorded them, no manipulations at all.
