Branching out

January is drab and colorless in this part of the country. I stepped out into my backyard today, camera in hand, and saw no scenery worth photographing. And then I looked higher and found the beauty in my neighbors' trees.

Autumn's oranges refusing to surrender 

Graceful limbs stretching through mingled greens and golds

White bark framing a patch of blue

Maybe I'll just walk through life with my eyes raised upwards until spring.



  1. I've always enjoyed the colors of winter. We have to look deeper (or higher) to find them because they do not shout like in Spring or Summer.

  2. Nice photos! Not much color left here.
