Willows on the Regents Canal

My postcards for A Postcard from My Walk have got bigger and bigger!

This January postcard - which now lives in France with Ronelle van Wyk (Africantapestry and Myfrenchkitchen).  I loved what she says about it in Willow Reflections.
I especially love the darkness of the reflections breaking up into softer tones and hues and more highlights and finally disappear into the lefthand corner, adding such lovely diagonal movement. I feel as if I'm slowly passing in a canoe, dragging my hand through the ripples and reflections.
These willows are in an area where the canal boats turn round and hence there's a bit more water than usual.  The colours in January in the sun are also very interesting - if you look hard!
