January Tree (026/365)

“The most ordinary of prospects caused her to stop and stare. The last of the leaves dropped from the trees, and the bare branches made lace against pale skies.”

Pilcher, Rosamunde. *The Shell Seekers*. St. Martin's Press, 1987.

TIME: 3:26 PM
PLACE:  Front yard
SUBJECT:  Red Sunset Maple tree

This is the first picture in an experiment inspired by Janasworld Fotoprojekt: zwolf2010.  I found out about this from bentonflocke’s blog.  I did not officially sign up, but I am using the idea in my Project 365 this year.  What I will be doing is this:  During 2010 on the 26th of each month, at around the same time, I will take a photo of the tree in my front yard.  It will be interesting to see the changes each month.  I chose the tree because it is right here at home and easily accessible.  I’m placing the camera at the base of the trunk (same place each month) and just pressing the shutter.  Easy peasey.

Up north we've had very little sunshine in January. You made me quite envious with this shot!

Great idea! I saw this on BentonFlockes blog too and have been trying to think of what I could use for a monthly subject.

Glad you join in the project!
