Winter woods

In the winter I find I take more photos of plant life than the actual snow on the ground. Forest life is stripped down to its essential framework, revealing skeletal textures of leaves what are left of flowers. The open canopy lets the soft winter light in, reflecting off the white snow and illuminating colours that are usually overshadowed by green.

  1. Beautiful! I agree- the leaves and trees really take on a whole new life. And seeing the nests in trees so exposed is interesting too. I'm trying to search out birds, but being on the 4th floor they don't come up this high for a feeder...hope to go out in the wild again soon...;)
