The Trees of Winter

Filed under: Uncategorized — cabenelson @ 10:57 pm

Kim and I live on a tree lined street… a VERY tree lined street. It’s beautiful in the Summer and Fall but during winter months they look like death hanging over our house… waiting to fall on us at any given moment! I was in our backyard grilling our dinner when I noticed that with the contrast of the sky and the darkness of the trees it was a perfect silhouette.



You might be wondering why I did two different sizes. Well, the first one needed to be smaller to provide you with a frame of reference. That the trees on the outside needed proper space with the white sky. While the second was is suppose to surround you and be more in your face. 🙂



  1. I know what you mean! Like black, gnarly, skeleton-fingers everywhere. Reminds me of those Halloween silouttes! Thanks for making the ordinary extraordinary!
