  1. Your images almost make me wish for snow … almost … soon enough … soon enough … beautiful image. I love knowing you are actually standing right there…

    • This is an interesting season for snow here. None in the valleys, but we can go find it in the mountains if we want.

      I wish you could have the feeling of standing up there, Teresa!

    • They sure do have interesting characters, don’t they! I always think of the blizzards they have been in.

  3. Hi Montucky, What an appropriate caption! The graceful old snags under their blanket of snow, with those clouds above are beautiful. Have a wonderful weekend!

    • The world is different up there. It’s interesting to see how the trees react.

  6. This is in the same area as the other photo with the snow on those tree snags, right? But a different time, as the clouds have rolled in? Beautiful. Your camera sure takes clear pictures..

    • Yes, the same place, just minutes apart. On a day like that the light and clouds change in seconds and so the same views appear differently and new ones become clear. I took about 60 pictures in just an hour or so up there.

    • In a place like that, when the weather is changing, hundreds of images appear out of the clouds and sun. It’s a fantastic place to be with a camera!

    • It is very hard, but they still live, and in the dry atmosphere their skeletons stay for a long, long time.

  10. When i was a boy I had an HO train set and I used to make trees and bushes out of wires and lichens. That’s what this photo reminds me of-a tiny landscape, even though it’s really huge.It’s a beautiful photo.

    • They can be seen that way! If I could get up there when the light is just right there might be some Halloween scenes!
