Remnants of Pickerel Lake

Remnants of Pickerel Lake
 
I took a walk on the new ice last week.

The early evening sun throws long shadows.

Long-dead Tamaracks give character to this shallow lake.

Years of weathering, wind, and sun enhance the wood grain.
 
Long, tapered branches twist and persist.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
How much longer will this Tamarack stand?

  1. Amy:

    Thank you for your comments, and for being here at WWFN.

    It's all about the light, isn't it? The low-in-the-sky (and rare) winter sun warms the photographs, even on the frozen lake.

    I appreciate your interest, and I'm eager to hear from you again.

    Gratefully,

    Richard
