FSO Transitions

A combination of working full time this past week and a sore back (surely it can’t be from sitting so much at work?) has stopped me from having much to contribute this week. 
Every morning as I drive to work I see my favourite tree.  And every morning lately I look for signs of fresh growth.  None yet, but soon (the next photo was taken in Sept last year) this stark beauty will make the transition from this:
fav winter to this:
Sept09
I forgot when I stopped to take yesterday’s photo what spot I had taken the previous one from.  Yesterday I was just up around that left hand bend. 
Thanks for the topic, Redlan.  I’m sorry I’m not up to it. 
To check out Redlan’s interpretation from the Iloilo City, Philippines  just click here.  Or why not have a look at everyone who has participated this week?  You will find them here.

  1. Gosh. That really is some transition. I can't imagine it in its winter lack of plumage.

  2. Great transition photo! not only the trees are different, the clouds are too, no two days are the same!

  3. Do you get a lot of rain where you live? It seems that there are clouds in both pictures.
    I'm partial to the first photo. Something about the starkness. I love Winter scenes. Is it Winter down there right now?
    So many questions... but I'm so interested in New Zealand and Australia.

  4. I saw the same clouds which I am going to post Friday sky. Isn't it unusual type of clouds?

  5. This is a big change, isn't it? The passage of seasons is a remarkable thing to observe.

  7. From dry brown to lush green, that's the best kind of transition there is. I wasn't really up to this theme either but I did push myself this morning.

  8. I thought it was very interesting that the surrounding trees looked pretty much the same in both photos...really played up the difference in your Focus Tree and the clouds. Another special take on the theme...I always enjoy your photos!
