Sun filtering through the trees

Every old home in Madras will have a mango tree . And so does mine . Out of the couple ,this is my favourite mango tree in my home in Madras.There are no mangoes that were hanging,waiting to be plucked ,but often I have lost myself squinting at the sun filteriung through it . Watching squirrels chase each other , parrots screeching in ecstasy and a kite chasing a pigeon ...the mango tree has been my inspiration many times .

hi thanks for your visit and comments, these are wonderful photos of the sun coming through the mango trees, what I love about a mango tree is how sweet its leaves smell...(and the fruit is heavenly...)

Great series! I love how the light is just peeking through the tree!
I was so amazed to see mango trees in Vietnam. They are so exotic and lovely. I wish I could have one too :)
