The Oak Tree

Two weeks ago, I published two photos that added with the help of the rosehips and the pine tree a little bit of colour to the otherwise grey winter landscape. Many people also noticed the oak tree with the orange leaves. Who can solve the puzzle about the leaves still on this tree and also on all the maple trees here in our little community at the end of January? I have never observed this curious phenomenon before. Today’s photo was taken in bright sunshine about a week ago. Enjoy.

Of Snow Sculptures and Winter Landscapes

During the last two weeks, I may have created the false impression that I did not like winter with my nostalgic look back to summer and fall. Nothing could be farther from the truth. Every season has its beauty. I pulled photos out of my archives because I had to take care of my wife and make sure that her broken leg was healing properly. There was just no time to go out and take pictures for both of us. Today and the day before, Biene and I drove down to the lake. My wife could not leave the car but took photos through the open window. I wandered around the parking lot to look for some worthwhile themes. The highways crew had piled up the snow such that the resulting sculptures displayed interesting shapes. Here they are. Enjoy!

Incredible Accumulations of Snow

There seems to be no proper balance of climate on this planet of ours. Some regions, even though they are located on the same latitude, get very little or no snow at all. People from these snow poverty stricken areas complain when they look at my pictures. And I reply you can have half of this white stuff, and we would still have more than enough. Oh well, as President Carter so wisely once stated, nothing is fair in life. I hope when viewing my pictures, you get a sense how our winters have been in the last couple of years. Enjoy!
