Shadow Shot Sunday: Tree

DSCN2129

"I frequently tramped eight or ten miles through
the deepest snow to keep an appointment with a beech-tree,
or a yellow birch, or an old acquaintance among the pines."
~ Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862) ~

Still waiting for spring here… It got delayed by another snowfall of 10 cm or so between Thursday and Friday this week! Which probably will have brought the lawn in this park back to just about the same state it was in a month ago, when I took this photo. Unlike Thoreau… I did not go back to check in person…

  1. It looks like a conductor with his arms up in the air! Perhaps he is conducting "The Rites Of Spring"!

  4. Love of the image of the tree etched in the snow. I can imagine how you long for warmer weather but all your snow images are so lovely, I will be sad when it's all gone.
