Outlined in white

Snow brings out the varied shapes of trees.

Deciduous trees and beaver-downed alders.

Oyster Bay meadow.

Wildlife snag with snow cap.

Older tree, with new saplings.

I never noticed before; most of the branches on the right side (from this angle) are missing. Or never grew. Wind patterns? 


La nieve destaca las formas variadas de los árboles.
  1. Alisos tumbadas por los castores, y árboles de hoja caduca en pie.
  2. El prado de Oyster Bay.
  3. Un tronco muerto, habitat y fuente de alimento de animales y pájaros, con sombrerito de nieve.
  4. Árboles perennifolios, viejo y jovenes.
No lo había notado antes: este árbol ha perdido la mayor parte de sus ramas del lado derecho visto desde este punto. O nunca crecieron. ¿Qué sería la causa? ¿La dirección de los vientos, tal vez?


  1. I wonder if that tree had fire damage.

  2. The one-sided one? Possible. Actually, that sounds more reasonable than wind, and I do see many trees with old burn scars.


I'm having to moderate all comments because Blogger seems to have a problem notifying me. Sorry about that. I will review them several times daily, though, until this issue is fixed.

Also, I have word verification on, because I found out that not only do I get spam without it, but it gets passed on to anyone commenting in that thread. Not cool!
