[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The snow won't stick to the weeping willows
The cold air won't blow open the windows
You've made it through the storm this far
You've done this dear, it won't be hard
Well, snow won't stick to the weeping willows

This weeping willow is humongous and lives on the edge of the city of Cheney, Washington, about 20 0miles from Spokane, Washington and close to the Palouse. It is nearing 90 feet tall and is very large and bushy.

(Salix babylonica) originated in China! The tree is abundant in Eastern Washington. Some of our prominent locales are named after Willows such as The Willows Cafe and Motel.

Hello Robert,
What a magnificent site this old willow must be. We also have them in South Africa but I've never seen one this big. I like your poem. Thanks for sharing this beautiful old tree with us.

Hallo Bob,
a beautiful misterious picture of this willow, very good sharpness and bright colours.
Have a good weekend

Hey Bob, Very nice and seen great use of imagination! with this one my friend, splendid diagonals and well composed, good lighting with nice colour tones, great effort here Bob and very well done,
Best Regards,


Interesting photo Robert! The composition is excellent.

Hi Bob,
beautiful approach of turning those pale green branches of giant willow trees into a pleasantly rhythmical abstract painting. Thank you!
With all my best wishes to you,

Sencillo pero interesante trabajo que nos permite conocer parte de la flora de tu zona.
Más que un árbol es un monstruo ... 27 m. ! y además lo imagino con una gran envergadura
por el porte natural de los sauces (Salix sp.).
Un saludo Robert y buen fin de semana: Josep Ignasi.

Beautiful shot BOB, and nice poem too.
Looks like a waterfall created by willow branches. A 90 ft. tall willow..that must be a real sight to see. TFS.

Hi Bob,

The shape of the weeping willow is an asset to the composition. The point of view is showing with precision the details and colors of the weeping willow. The good luminosity is bringing out the colors. Have a nice day.


Hello Bob

Excellent foliage photo giving graphical
and artistic aspect to the image, TFS
