In the Company of Trees

Look at the white pine, refusing to share it’s warm boughs with the bare naked trees. Nature can have some rough mistresses.

This photo was taken in Salmo Pond in the Black Earth Watershed, Black Earth WI, 20 miles west of Madison. The watershed region has some of the best trout streams in the Midwest. (Whoops, we try to keep that a secret!)

    This is a beautiful photo. I love the silhouette of the trees against the sky. I can ‘feel’ the chill in the air.

    White pines can be stingy that way. Maybe because they often lose a few of their needles during the cold months.

    Beautiful photo. 🙂

    Very dramatic…nature on stage!
    As I have said many times…you have a good eye!

    I love the contrast between the trees and the sky, and the composition is good as well. Great work!
