For the love of trees. As a child I was the first in my class to draw trees with branches; not the trunk with a balloon of green over the top. Or even the trunk with limbs coming off at right angles. For some reason even as young as five I knew there was an intricate pattern to the branches on trees. And decades later I still love drawing trees. And photographing them. Even the conifers which never bare their branches. But there is a pattern to their needle covered limbs. And the snow can define that.
This week I focused on trees: singly or in groups but all with snow. Trees in winter do well in a black and white treatment. And they are suited for a vertical composition. I need a vertical photograph or two or three for a Music From Angel Fire competition I am entering.
Week five will no doubt have more trees and more vertical compositions.
