The angular intricacy of leafless trees provide a striking graphic when silhouetted against the low winter sun.

The leaves themselves appear to be much more delicate and vulnerable-an effect that seems to be enhanced once they are on the ground.

Be sure to look up and down…

Take care.

The Winter Solstice, the first day of winter, was December 21st.  Weather-wise, winter most definitely has arrived in many parts of the U.S.  We are also now closing in on the new year.

These photos, though, are a reminder of just a bit ago when it was Fall-the leaves turned and eventually came down.

Going back a bit further, these same leaves provided a respite from the summer sun.

As we close the circle, that time is now ahead of us.

Take care.
