Another image in this series on leaf fall and the arrangements created by nature and the elements. We tend to look for, and be attracted to, leaves that have an individual beauty, created by shape, form and colour: Oak and Maple spring immediately to mind. But to confine one’s observation to those undeniably attractive leaves is to exclude the subtle shapes of Willows that, when blown by the wind, cluster together creating shapes that remind me of  hieroglyphs.

About LensScaper

Hi - I'm a UK-based photographer who started out 45+ years ago as a lover of landscapes, inspired by my love of outdoor pursuits: skiing, walking and climbing. Now retired, I seldom leave home without a camera and I find images in unexpected places and from different genres. I work on the premise that Photography is Art and that creativity is dependent on the cultivation of 'A Seeing Eye'.

    I like to remember the words of Henry Ward Beecher: “Men are like trees, each one must put forth the leaf that is created in him.” Taking the time to focus on the parts of nature that are less obviously (or stereotypically) beautiful can yield great rewards, as your photo demonstrates.


  2. Excellent photo with a very limited colour palette. I am particularly drawn to the contrasting structures between the leaves and the ground.

    You’re right, and I love willows, and willow leaves – they are so graceful, which is just what you show here.
