Your courage has paid off! I can feel the wind, and the rain-Brr, time for a hot coffee in a warm room sometime soon!

Dit ís toch ook mooi. Fotobloggen gaat er volgens mij ook om dat je post wat je raakt. Aan de lucht zie je dat het ruig weer is. Dat vind ik mooi.

A tormented sky blown out. A wind that shakes the weak and defenseless branches of solitary bush ... so is life ... ours ... that of humans ... helpless and weak endure all that threatens us and offend us. A highly symbolic image Thea ... an image that makes me a "fur coat the stomach" ... aroused strong feelings in my soul! A hug friend!

Good morning, Thea,
It's just beautifully presented. The sight makes me suspect as the weather is and the movement of the willow in the wind. It is a stylish image and excellent color choice. Congrtulation and 5 stars *****
Have a nice day and all the best. Dear greetings Christel

I like the starkness of the shot which fits showing us the lone willow. A successful image in my book.

Wat een boze lucht maar die wilg houd stand daar moet je toch bewondering voor hebben, voor jou ook omdat je dit zo mooi hebt verbeeld.
