I am enjoying this picture more as I have a darker screen, very bright screens kill the impact of the picture. please tell your readers to click on the picture to enjoy the full screen view in flickr

I really like this photo. What I would call "dramatic". The silhouette of the limbs, the backlit leaves, and the bright clouds all work for me. Good job.

kunal : u did??? somehow these tiny leaves springing up earlier than others and braving it out in time of climate change (we have had early showers than expected and a cold front in midst of soaring temperatures)is what made me feel very strongly for them.... :)

I followed your link home from Anna's site, and I'm thrilled that I did.

Your photography reminds me so much of my own: evocative, different, personal.

Excuse me while I go explore more of your archives. I hope you'll drop by my site for a peek at my own.

All the best!
