Winter Barks (part 1)

With the wrong mindset one could think that there is little to see or photograph in a winter landscape – snow covers just about everything, the trees are bare except the evergreens which seem to be so dark and have little “green”  However, when I slow down and look around, as I recently did while hiking the trails in Edmonton’s river valley, I see wonderful colors and patterns such as these, on the trunk of trees:


Birch Bark

Blue Lichen

A Touch of Yellow


Stripped of Bark

Watch for a continuation of my observations and photos in Part 2.
