Huisache tree and low wispy cloud
On February 19, 2013, at the intersection of Shoal Creek Blvd. and Foster Ln. in north-central Austin I photographed an overhanging part of a flowering huisache tree (Acacia farnesiana) with a wispy cloud low on the horizon beyond it. I used flash to lighten the underside of the huisache that otherwise would have been too dark in comparison to the much brighter sky.
If you’d like a close view of the flowers of this very tree, though from 2012, I invite you to have a look. It’s worth it, honest, and there’s more information about huisaches there as well.
I’m away from home. You’re welcome to leave comments, but please understand if I’m slow in responding.
