Shadows on a Maple Tree

Afflictions are but the shadows of God's wings.

Shade tree

Shade tree

It was a hot spring day and I parked under this big shade tree hoping to keep my car a little cooler. After putting the windows up I glanced into this big maple tree enjoying the tranquil look of the green leaves  and the shadows dancing on the trunk and branches. Notice the deeper shaded shadows at the top and the softer lower down? Also notice the reflection of my car interior in the photos? That was not intentional. :-) This post linked to Weekend reflection and Shadow Shot Sunday.

Thank you for your visit. I hope you have a wonderful weekend. Take care, stay healthy and God bless!

Beautiful! It's such a grand looking tree! I'm sure your car appreciated being parked below and enjoyed the cool break :)

There is something looking up into a tree that reminds me of my childhood.

Fantastic finds, Judy, and the reflection back to the tree is great!

That is a beautiful old shade tree, and it makes such a lovely pattern of shadows. The reflection is the icing on the cake.

Last week we sat under a shaded tree at a church. Yes. Me at church. It was a special outside mass. Even though the surrounding was distracting with foxes running beneath the hill, the incredible peace and tranquility was better than any massages I ever had. I want to sit under that tree again.
