sunday in the park


This old tree is in Riverside Park just as you enter at 79th Street
I took this after it snowed just before Christmas.

Wow.. that's a beautiful low-sweeping branch. Sweeping Beauty. ;)

Robin said...

Beautiful, and so quiet and peaceful feeling that it almost (almost) makes me miss snow.

Lily Hydrangea said...

I can see paths starting to form in the snow underneath the tree-or were they there before?

A cold, but beautiful day in the park.

bent but not broken
lovely old tree

judi said...

as the twig is bent so grows the tree. You captured it beautifully.

That is one determined tree...a true New Yawker;)

Daryl, is it YOU, or my EYES that are playing tricks on me??? This isn't a color picture, is it, and yet I swear I see muted greens and browns. Perhaps I've finally lost my mind.

In any case, I love the shot. Oh and...

I love you, too. :-)

I bow to the god of snow.

Love the effect of the snow on your blog while looking at a picture of snow - makes me feel like I'm looking out of a window.

It looks like an arched entranceway into a winter wonderland. Gorgeous.

Erin said...

I love snow covered trees. Pretty shot!

It's beautiful. I'm always transfixed by the snow here, and when it lies on branches like this, it's really pretty. Am still waiting for a real snow storm though, this winter has been disappointing.

Country Girl said...

Beautiful but your snowy weather makes me shiver !!!
Hugs and blessings,

Say Gruyere? I LOVE that! :)

I agree with the comment that said the snow effect on your blog coupled with the snow in the pic is like looking out a window. I like the way this picture makes me feel a little lonely, but also a little warm inside...if I were to put music to this picture, it would be "Our Winter Love" by Bill Pursell. Perfect for this picture, in my opinion. :)

Marvelous! Puts a face on the expression "bend but don't break". Love it a lot!

TSannie said...

Beautiful!

I'm voting for Sea Shanty. You?

TSannie said...

I love trees that decided not to grow straight up.

diane said...

This picture is beautiful Daryl. What a heavy load of snow for that beautiful branch to hold, and yet it does so eloquently =)

Love it, just feels so wintry.

It could almost make me wish I lived in a more wintry land.
