Tree in the mist

Tree in the Mist

There hasn't been that many photo-ops lately. At least not for me, the fanatic street portrait photographer. Whenever I have decided to go out with the camera it has started to rain. The weatherman said something about 90 minutes of sun this month, and that sound about right. And there's more of the same to come over the next week. It's very depressing. Yesterday was another grey day. Very misty and with a light rain falling. On my way home from a visit to the police (new passport and ID-card), I decided for yet another visit to the old tree at Välsta. Boy was the path muddy on that visit! But the tree looked good in the mist. Believe it or not, but this was my 199th photo of the Swedish Whitebeam.

This tree is dear to us in every kind of weather. As soon as I saw it coming through on my screen I began to smile.

Lovely in the mist! Actually, lovely tree any time.

Ninety minutes of sun?? Eek! I'd go bonkers there — I am a sun person through and through!

magnifique j'adore. On pourrait se croire dans un conte pour enfant, l'arbre aux mauvais sorts ;o)

Good morning old friend.

What a fabulous fabulous shot, Steffe. Just amazing the tree stands out yet almost drowning in mist. It's so beautiful. I too love photographing people and it's hard on bad weather days, of which you have more than me. Today's shot will start you on a tree series!

It's terribly difficult going for long periods without seeing the Sun. We have just the opposite problem here. A cloudy day is most welcome. Not too many in a row, however.

This shot is spooky and gorgeous. Perfect!

This is an incredibly beautiful tree.
Now go on a trip...90 minutes of sun is not enough!

It looks a little eerie in this shot, but I like it anyway!

Your glorious old tree looks fantastic shrouded like that.
