March's Photo Heart Connection has just been posted on Kat Sloma's website. I look forward to these heart connections links because I really do believe that each month there are photographs that I take that really speak to me.
I was trying to decide between these two images. The bottom one taken on March 1st on San Juan Island, my home, and the top one taken on March 17th, Saint Patrick's Day, on Vashon Island, during our annual retreat.
I finally chose the top image because I find this particular tree to be so utterly mesmerizing each year that I get to see it during our retreat. It's such a perfect time of year too - although year there were very few weather breaks. This year we had a cold snap with thunder storms (rare on the West Coast), driving hail and pounding side ways rain storms. I was fortunate to have found a perfect sunny break to snap a few photos. This tree just always calls to me - that's why I've chosen it for my photo-heart-connection for March.
