Animate it! It would be cool for a carp to appear and gulp a mouthful of air, revealing we're really looking at a reflection in a pool

Woo to the pic.

Reminds me of the neurons in the brain. With their branches touching, communicating.

Like the forest is the brain of the world and the sky with its clouds is what it's dreaming of.

"...lying on my back..."

Hmm...

[Sorry, I'm a thirteen-year-old at heart.]

It looks more like veins and nerve endings in a giant eyeball...see the round, blue eye?

Good to see your post, my favorite Althouse!

I tweeted this a while ago:

Althouse has been abducted by space aliens! They faked 2 posts, & left a message how they would like to serve her. Oh, no! It's a cookbook!!

Are we sure the real Althouse is back?

Trees tie the earth and sky.

The sky setting off dark branches, trees arching on the cold canopy of winter, you are inside a circle of tall trunks of bare oaks and maples, the sky above shot thru with dark limbs. You must be laying back after a long walk. Talking about this and that. No purple in your view, only loving discovery and tenderness.

Goddamn it, I can't talk about 'tweeting' without feeling like I just farted in church!

Sorry.

Cool image! Good to see a new fisheye tree post. Hope you had a good trip wherever you went. Looks like fun.

Well, it beats lying on your back in vivid red sauced-soaked onion rings photographically documenting the ceiling of a dive restaurent.

Yes, you had you reasons..
So when is the "Althouse Photography Highlights" coffee table book coming out? Highlighted by "willows against Maxfield Parrish-colored reflecting waters"

"Looks like fun."

You have no idea!

Unfortunately, I knocked a switch out of kilter on the camera and lost a lot of pics I was hoping would be first rate.

"You have no idea!"

I think I recognize that tree.

Penny said...

On your back, in the not unfamiliar, pleasant dampness... The lengths we women are willing to go for just the right shot.

Well done, Ann!

Ah, to be a rock and not to roll (over).
