beautiful! I love the contrast and the sky! I especially love the road that drives your eye through the frame. Also how the tree splits the picture in two, (normally not a good thing, but it works perfectly here), a manmade side (the road) and nature (the fenced off field) great use of converging lines, (the road and fence)

The single tree is a powerful image,
especially against that cloudy but positively glowing sky.
Snow gone and new leaf buds on the trees. Harbingers of Spring.

moody and thought provoking. Classic
5 Apr 2010 6:28am
Beautiful. I love the way one little cloud hovers over the road as though it is waiting.
5 Apr 2010 6:57am
What a wonderful perspectice composition leading us to the new season! I love the small cloud at the end of the road.
5 Apr 2010 7:09am
on the way to spring, leaving winter...such a nice compo with that tree by the road and little cloud just at the end, just like waiting for us to come...cloudy winter sky on the right side becoming clearer on the left like a wind of spring blowing...two ways leading to better weather, by earth and by air...one great picture you can watch for long time for interpretation ;o) 5*

The solitary tree projecting the shade on worthy an isolated highway… of the best graphical narration.
5 Apr 2010 8:58am

Beautiful realization and composition, beautiful black and white.

Lovely composition. The lines of light in the road the icing on the cake
5 Apr 2010 4:23pm
I would not like for my Spring to be like this . It looks so sad and that solitary tree looks like a solitary person .
Beautiful light and mono !
5 Apr 2010 4:29pm
A picture perfect with this lonely tree with his shadow on the road. A W / B ideal! An excellent composition with a very powerful sky!
5 Apr 2010 4:30pm
A fantastic composition Sharon! The puffy clouds are the embodiment of spring and the foreground is perfect. Well done! ;-)
5 Apr 2010 4:44pm
Well composed. Nice how that tree stands up against the sky.
5 Apr 2010 4:46pm
A beautiful day in early Spring. Love the clouds and big tree.

ohH! it's so beautiful that makes me want to walk that path!

Such a beautiful place to take a walk. Love the B&W treatment here.
5 Apr 2010 6:52pm
Well-balanced composition, and nice B&W conversion. Love the tiny cloud all by itself just above the road.
5 Apr 2010 7:06pm
oh my! what an enchanting place!
5 Apr 2010 7:36pm
Carries that optimistically spring message that everything is possible !
5 Apr 2010 7:39pm
wonderful moody sky and that sole tree is strong.
5 Apr 2010 10:00pm
Still a fine composition, beautiful in B & W ! I really like the light and framing !
5 Apr 2010 10:01pm
so dramatic! Very nicely done!
5 Apr 2010 11:42pm
This is a very nice photo. The midrange tones in the grass is great, and I like the bit of sheen on the road-- just a hint of spring damp.
6 Apr 2010 12:51am

6 Apr 2010 1:25am

6 Apr 2010 6:34am
simply a beautiful photo very powerful
6 Apr 2010 6:52am
Beautifully inviting path, like the last image of a film (could even see Charlie Chaplin going away here), love the tree and your monochrome, both so class. Have a nice week, Sharon ~
6 Apr 2010 7:30am
an image we all see everyday made beautiful
6 Apr 2010 7:48am
Very suggestive opening of a new begginning :o)
6 Apr 2010 8:38am
It seems a snapshot from an american road movie, great pic!!
6 Apr 2010 10:46am
Clouds are flying away.... light at the end of the path... much more than a clear patch, a brand new season which always makes me want to be on the road (again). Gorgeous b&w !!
6 Apr 2010 12:41pm
dramatica composición, me encanta este trabajo, muy bonita!!
6 Apr 2010 2:20pm

7 Apr 2010 10:46am
Pretty clouds and road, and the tree stands alone! I always wonder when I see a tree alone someplace, how it came to be.
7 Apr 2010 1:28pm
That is a gorgeous landscape with that super sky.

"You can never hold back spring" (Tom Waits)
My favourite singer, my favourite songwriter, my favourite photographer & my kind of imagery. Nothing better than walk dirt roads & see the world through your eyes, Sharon. Love this one more than words can describe. All the best & safe travels, Fritsch.
8 Apr 2010 7:13am
Love the shadow of the tree on the road.
very well framed.
8 Apr 2010 8:32pm
What a beautiful shot!! Love the lone tree and the way the road continues until its out of sight from the hill.

Great place to be, for sure !
