I’m not really sure if this is a Willow tree, but it does remind me of the Willow plates that I used to eat off as a child. I think the ones from those days have become collectable in their sets. Anyway the tree is in the wetland area, not far from my house. The area is constantly under threat for road construction. While I know growth is a necessity, it may be sad to see the area go. In the mean time the houses are reasonably cheap around the wetland due to the RTA restrictions. I say reasonably, this is Sydney after all.
The above is photographed on my 5D, and processed in LR and photoshop. The first image is the colours of the eve, pretty much as they were.
