"The tree is more than first a seed, then a stem, then a living trunk,
and then dead timber.
The tree is a slow, enduring force straining to win the sky."
Antoine de Saint-Exupery

"winning the sky" is a unique turn of phrase to describe! PS. I have been out of town, Up North, for a week near the Canadian border without internet or cell phone capability. Very peaceful and serene and I loved it; gorgeous sunrises and sunsets. But I have not been able to visit any of my blogger friends. It'll take awhile to read all of my email messages and to visit your posts to see what I've missed, but it's good to be back!ReplyDelete
Thanks HansHB!!! Hope your weekend is filled with great photography!!!ReplyDelete
Thanks Genie!!! There's something about snow photos that just lean toward black and white for me!!! Maybe it's all that white!!!
Thanks Kate! Glad you had a great time and being without the internet can be soooo refreshing!!! Good for you!!! Glad you're back and refreshed!!!

That video made me laugh!! The one where the person finally got out of the car and then started sliding around and laughing was great! It went perfectly with the serenity of the first part of the post. :-)ReplyDelete
Thanks LadyFi and AmitAag!!!ReplyDelete
I'm glad you got a chuckle out of it Adele!! It's been really cold up here...and icy!!! I've had a few close calls...both on foot and in the car!!! Thank God for snow boots and snow tires!!!
As with trees losing their leaves, only to grow back anew again, so it will be with the hair of man.ReplyDelete
Something we should know about Cafe??? Is the Pasadena canine shedding???ReplyDelete

Thanks Dragonstar and Nature Footstep!!! I agree...the whiteness of the snow and the contrast with the trees just seems to call for B&W!!!ReplyDelete
