Good morning, and thank you everyone for youe nice comments. I was wondering if anyone might think this is an IR image...the tree actually has white blossoms and it is a simple, probably too dark, blk/wht!

Thanks, again :)

I zeroed in on those light rays, as Agnes did...marvelous! Beautiful tones and light and what a wonderful weeping fruit tree in glorious bloom...(I know the song, too..."Lalena")...Wonderful capture, Patti!

Thank you Melissa, and Rona...I was working on this (on a whim) at around 4:30 AM...so it's probably a bit dark, etc...but you get the idea, anyway :) Thanks again!

What a beautiful moment you have captured here, Patti. It feels like morning to me, perhaps because the geese seem to be greeting the sun. Anyway, the light rays are wonderful and the tree so vibrant.

Hi Patti, I was going over some of your work, you really are one of my favorite photographer's. I just love this image and the title is perfect. What do you use for your B/W conversion?

André
