A very good photo Ron. Thanks.
I particularly like how you've allowed only part of the large tree trunk and few of its upper branches to be seen amid the verdant mass - a time and place for 'full frontals', of course -, but oh how you must have wished for a medium-red tea shirt to have appeared in the mid-distance.

I once did a painting for a friend,it was a seascape but I painted the base of the lighthouse red..it made all the difference...but that's not to take away Rons shot of those lovely trees.

Didn't Turner once transform a seascape by adding a red buoy to the foreground with a quick last minute blob applied with his thumb?
I think this was portrayed in the film 'Mr.Turner', much to the chagrin of Constable.

That's another lovely Spring scene, Ron.
Keep up the good work.

That's right, Poet. And Turner's seascape is called Helvoetsluys.
My niece sent me the Mr Turner dvd as a Christmas present last year, and I still haven't played it.
