The symbolism of willow, strongly present in Polish literature, painting and photography.
Queen of the most abundant willow fostered in Polish poetry.
- Rows of roadside willows symbolize loneliness among men,
- Weeping willow people called weepers,
- Willow topped - widows, as a widow after her husband's death was cuting hair.
People used to say that the willow kneel, bend, cuddle, especially the dead.

I see soft natural light filtering between pillars of a cathedral to illuminate the tiny-branches-vaulted ceiling!
Great shot prompting introspection.

Very atmospheric mono vision with high contrast and ancient willows, accentuated branches from heavy pruning, and visible during winter. And the depth of field and angled composition attract.
