When I looked at this photograph I was surprised to see how the tree trunk blended in with the surrounding rocks, lichen and moss. I can't decide if it is the tree or the background that is camouflaged.

Ghost Trees

The branches are coated with lichen making the trees appear ghostly white although they are very much alive and about to burst into leaf.

Trees and Fences

Late winter is an excellent time to photograph one of my favourite subjects...trees and fences. Recently I have been thinking about why I am so captivated by this subject. I think it is very simple, I admire the tenacity of nature, the strength to overcome barriers and adversity. I can learn a lot from looking at a tree and a chain link fence.
