Light through the Trees

[please click on photos for a better view]

We're deep into winter here in Maine, and it's easy for me to become a total couch potato.

But yesterday I managed to get up, get out, and take a walk at our local Audubon center.

I took my camera and got plenty of shots even though I was not there long.

I'm so glad I made the effort, because it was exhilarating!

The recent heavy rains had washed away a lot of the snow so walking was easy.

And since it was nearly sunset, the light through the trees was really lovely.

It was the ideal way to end the day and wrap up the month of January.

GORGEOUS!!! You know, I really love the stark winter landscape. There's something so inward and renewing about it and you captured it so perfectly! Thank you!! Hugs, Silke

I love the light moving through your trees, and it makes me shiver looking at them! I've turned into a weenie living here in the Deep South.
