Photographer's Note

Hello Everyone,

This is a little 'aside' from my theme, although it is a photograph of an old farm house. The 17th century farmhouse is sheltering behind the large cherry tree.

My primary reason for taking this was to contrast the icy conditions with the soft, sprintime qualities of the cherry tree!

Then my thoughts went straight to that wonderful poem by Robert Browning when he was feeling homesick for England in springtime! What would he have felt about this I wonder!

Home Thoughts from Abroad
Robert Browning (1812–89)

OH, to be in England now that April ’s there
And whoever wakes in England sees, some morning, unaware,
That the lowest boughs and the brushwood sheaf
Round the elm-tree bole are in tiny leaf,
While the chaffinch sings on the orchard bough
In England—now!

The photograph was taken hand held, icy hands, with my small camera as I had been out walking.

Many thanks for stopping by.
I hope the weather is better for you!
Please feel fre to offer feedback on any aspect of the photograph. :-)
