Pine, spruce and cedar are predominant in our area. Through the winter their green needles remind us that summer will return again.
The little coniferous among the birch and poplar at the creek made me think of Christmas.
Have a safe and happy Holiday season.

A cool damp morning as the mist is chased by the sun, tiny insect webs are revealed.
The other evening, the air was crisp and clear, the sky clear blue and the water calm. The lake called me out from the shore. I’m glad I answered the call.
To get the star light glow of the setting sun, I set the f-stop as deep (or wide – I never am sure of the technical description) as I dared (f29) and shot when the sun was brightest poking through the pine bows. I was driving the motor boat alone as I shot so I cruised as low as possible past this point of land several times to capture the sun before it disappeared over the horizon.
Morning frost clings to tips of red pine needles.
The other morning the trees around my place were decorated with tinsel-like frost. I had commitments that morning that kept me from heading out with my camera to savour this rare spectacle but snapped these shots on my way out the door.
