Winter walking

A winter walk, enlivened by stunning shapes….

It felt as if this fir tree was celebrating the fact that it escaped the culling of trees for Christmas. In fact, its growing pattern looks either rebellious or ridiculous according to your frame of mind.

The ice is still with us, but not quite so in your face and all around. There is hope that the year has well and truly started on its journey to spring. Time to count our blessings and think of the cycle of life.

Trees march down the skyline in the approaching dusk….

  1. Love the fir tree. It does look as though it’s holding up its arms in triumph. Skinny but full of hope. Thanks. A good start to the day.

    I also think the dusk photo is most intriguing. Such warm chocolate brown against a winter sky.

    I love the patterns that bare branches make on a skyline. Thank you for visiting my blog today.

  5. Freda, you have a great eye for “seeing” the patterns in nature. I need to do more of that kind of seeing.

    As it is, I would be looking at the fir tree and wondering why the leader branch split; looking at the frozen water and wondering how deep it was and if there were fish hibernating underneath the surface; and looking at the trees on the hillside wondering if the hill was solid rock underneath and if the trees could slide off if it rained a lot the way it does in California.
