Icy!

Who goes there?


It was 12 degrees today and the lake was frozen!  It had all sorts of neat little treasures captured in the ice.  Here are some walnuts.

Winter trees: Beautiful nakedness!

Love this bark!! How gorgeous is that?

I can't get enough of this texture.  I love all the textures of nature, especially contrasting against each other. 
This is older bark of a black gum tree, I believe.  LOVE IT!
