Weekly Photo Challenge: Perspective OR “Fire in them thar trees!”

I like the idea of this week’s challenge. When I saw “perspective” on my email, I ignored the post for a while – thinking I had to start trying to find a picture with an obvious vanishing point, or something architectural, or a railway line fading into a blip somewhere in North Dakota …
But no. Nothing that straightforward it appears. Instead, we are given an example of a cropped photo giving a different perspective than the original.

Gotta love a bit of lateral thinking … just the way I like it.

So here’s mine. Don’t forget to click on the photo(s) for better and clearer pictures.

Here’s a plain old silver birch as you may (or may not) notice as you wander through the woods:
Birch from a distance

Look a bit closer, and you see the way the bark peels away from the tree and curls up:

But look what magic happens when you catch one of those peely bits with the sun behind iit:
(there’s four pictures, so don’t click off after one)

Sun behind the clouds

Sun’s coming out to play …

Wait for it ...

Wait for it …

Tada!  Magic!

Tada!
Magic!

  1. Impressive

    • Thank you very much (Or were you talking about the fire impersonation trick? In which case, the tree thanks you very much).
      :o)

      • I was talking about the tree and how you managed to capture it so well. So it was an “impressive” to you both 😀

  2. I am absolutely completely gobsmacked. Did you know you were going to get that fiery image, or were you as surprised as I am?

  3. that is lovely … and I’m glad you’ve kept your header image — I love it!
