GOLDEN GLOW





After a week away in hospital I arrived back to be gobsmacked by the fiery nature of our Chinese Rowan tree!  The leaves and mass of berries really glowed like a beacon in the garden.    I am particularly pleased with this as I grew it from a tiny seedling I found growing on a pile of stones!


The early morning light as it came through the trees at the end of our garden.



The sun disappears from sight, leaving a great orange glow in the sky.   Taken on holiday in the Canary Islands in 2012

For more Golden Glows go to Carmi's Photographic Challenge and see what other photographs are glowing!

Lovely!
Hope you're over whatever sent you to the hospital.

Wow, what a beautiful tree. I love rowan trees! Which Chinese species is it? I had a hupehnsis in my Seattle garden, it had white berries.

Hope you are recovering well!

Wow, that tree is astonishing! That's a beautiful sunset shot, too.

Hope your hospital trip was for nothing important :)

That tree needs no sunset to bring out it's glow. Beautiful! Great capture of the light filtering through the trees too.

Gilly, Chickadees are much smaller than Tufted Titmice (Titmousies?).

Here's one with a Downy Woodpecker.
