I do like your tree photographs. These are all nice.

my Memories
I wrote in my Memories blog about the roads of my youth and how they were to travel in the winter time.

Neal said...

Such a beautiful picture and the title made me laugh!

As one who is very much familiar with
the bleakness of winter..you have captured the true feeling with this photo! Great capture!

Barbara said...

I agree those trees have a great deal of charactor. You brought even more charactor to them showing them in Monochrome. Great job. Smiles B

Carver said...

I love bare trees in a field so much and you captured these so well. I usually don't see trees that I can photograph as individuals except as I drive by. I have a lot of trees near me but they are all clustered. There is something particularly beautiful when they are in an open field.

Rose said...

this is one your best ever!

Babooshka said...

This is a wonderful image, just beautiful with the expanse of untouched snow.

Carletta said...

I read the title and fully expected something else - made me smile!

Mojo said...

Personality is right. The one on the right looks like it's flipping off the one on the left!

I love old gnarly trees like this... so much character and attitude.

And perfect in black and white!

PERBS said...

I really like this. Nice shot!

Aileni said...

Absolute gift of a picture. Looks more like father and son to me - there is a kind of echo of the larger tree in the smaller.
Very beautiful.

Catherine said...

They're just like survivors as everything else has disappear. As an ultimate will to resist to this white tide.
Great B&W shot, it tells all the story we can imagine with.

Lene said...

I love those trees! And that bridge is made even brighter in the snow! Aren't you always amazed that duck butts don't freeze? :)

Daryl said...

They are truly cantankerous looking ...

John said...

Very nicely composed.
You have an eye for finding fine compositions :)

BJ Roan said...

Trees have such wonderful shapes. I see one I really want to take a picture of, but it's along the highway and there isn't anywhere to pull off. These are great!

Liz said...
