I shot this on a cloudy day in Wilmington, DE. The temperature was around 38 degrees and windy. The clouds were moving pretty fast and the trees were blowing in the breeze. The sun was going in and out so I focused on this one particular cloud then captured this moment.

The leaves on this tree is just about to start growing.

Can’t wait for Spring to come.
