We have experienced relatively light snowfall amounts over the past few winters. This year snows came abundantly and often. It has been a while since we had such accumulation. This seems to make winter last longer. So although the calendar tells us it is spring, our environment is still buried in the white stuff. This makes ‘off trail’ snowshoeing a challenge. When I spotted a scene I wanted to capture with my big camera, I had to track through almost knee deep snow to get there.
What had caught my eye in this mature spruce forest of stark vertical lines was a single birch with branches accentuated by fresh snow. Do you see it peeking out in the photo above?
The next time I was out that way (a few days later) the snow had fallen off. Except for the deep path, I would not have been able to find that lonely birch!
My Heart is happiest when spending time with the most special people in my life! 😉
Is there a more beautifully decorated environment than the natural one?!For my aviation friends, the aircraft calendar can be found here along with screen resolutions for both images.
