Good choice to shoot through the trees. Rather than stopping the eye, it actually serves to draw you into it. Very nice.
Beauty pleases, not only the eyes, but, the heart as well. Sheila

Enchanting scene! love this picture--really neat composition with the light on the distant evergreen and field of purple thru the three trunks.
I am dying to know--is it lavender? Are those barkless trees alive or dead? Maybe that's a dumb question, but there is seeming to be a shade canopy from trees...what trees shed their bark and live on? please do tell @bootandall

Yes It Is Lavender, the farm is near my brothers place.
The trees are Eucalyptus and alot of the species do shed bark as noted, the trees are alive and well..

I agree with what Sheila posted.
And it makes me feel like I am standing in that grove of trees and discovering a hidden treasure of beautiful blooms. Love it.

I was tongue tied on this one. I just know I love it. Thanks Lynn for putting words to it. And dirtdorphins too! But I can't figure out how to get both quotes in the same post.
