Sycamore leaf

Description: I look at trees so often and always enjoy their movement in the wind but it is amazing how the human eye sees motion almost without seeing it. The ability of a camera to stop it, or slow it to a blur, is such a gift.

The colors are quite dramatic in this clean view, John.

It does bring to mind the question of what color others see compared to what I see! I have several friends who are color blind and we’ve learned to compare with some success what they see compared to my vision. But I often imagine what my world would look like without sky blue and leaf green, and, honestly, find it nearly impossible to do so.
