This one is a sweet little study of a tree. It was perfectly decorated by Mother Nature herself. I didn't have to change a thing. You can almost feel the cold in this one but the warm greens in the cedar and the color of the rocks at the base of the tree keep it from feeling too chilly.

This is a view across the street that I see every morning as I drink my coffee and read my emails. So familiar but yet with a covering of snow feels so fairytale like. It's funny how snow can change the ordinary into the extraordinary. I do love this old tree though in all kinds of weather. It has such personality and it's branches against the sky seemed almost like calligraphy to me.
