Hanging by a Thread

DESCRIPTION

Collect your choice of gallery quality Giclée, or fine art prints custom trimmed by hand in a variety of sizes with a white border for framing.

A solitary sycamore ball, covered in winter frost, hangs in the light of the morning sun.

An American sycamore tree can often be easily distinguished from other trees by its mottled exfoliating bark, which flakes off in great irregular masses, leaving the surface mottled, and greenish-white, gray and brown. A sycamore can grow to massive proportions, typically reaching up to 30 to 40 meters (98 to 130 ft) high and 1.5 to 2 meters (4.9 to 6.6 ft) in diameter when grown in deep soils.

Fruit: Brown heads, solitary or rarely clustered, an inch in diameter, hanging on slender stems three to six inches long; persistent through the winter. These heads are composed of akenes about two-thirds of an inch in length.

Stunning light and details. I can't help but love photos that capture those rare moments of winter sun and this is certainly no exception. Beautiful!

so beautiful, Tracey!
Lisa Argyropoulos commented on January 8, 2012 9:17pm
So lovely!
C.r. Pieron Photography commented on January 8, 2012 9:18pm
Hi Tracey! I was really impressed by this photograph. With your inspiration, perhaps I can get out of bed earlier in the morning to take such beautiful photos. I also highlighted you on my personal and business Facebook pages. I don't have many followers on the business page just yet; however, between the two, over 200+ people should see it. I hope this helps you and thank you again for the inspiration!
Tracey Tilson Photography commented on January 9, 2012 6:02am
Thank you so much for highlighting me, C.r.Pieron! You just made my morning!
I do love the way the sun enhances photos in the wee hours of the morning and in the late evening as well. I've always been fascinated by back lighting and the warmth displayed on objects facing the direction of a rising or setting sun.
I'll look forward to seeing what magic you can capture one morning :-)
Thanks again!
Tracey Tilson Photography commented on January 9, 2012 6:02am

Inspiring piece, Tracey! I love the frost in contradiction with the warm brown tones! (I think you just gave me an idea...)

There you go again with that awesome natural lighting coming in at a perfect direction bouncing of the crystal like branches. Very calming to me.
