Saturday Snapshot~February 8

It is so much fun to participate in Saturday Snapshot sponsored by Melinda at West Metro Mommy Reads.  I love seeing what the other photographers will share.  They inspire me to do more and try to create better photos.



I think that this photo started out as something different from what it ended up being.  My first intention was to show a photo of our most recent snowstorm.  When I took the photo it looked very white and my eye saw Lots of Snow.

Trees and snow


However, after I looked at the photo, I realized that you can’t really see the snow all that well.  What I do see is a wonderful collection of gnarled old tree branches.  I have tons of old trees in my yard so when I look, that’s what I see.  The more I looked at this photo, the more I liked it.  I’ve been noticing how interesting it is to look at winter trees.  I love the stark “skeleton” quality of the trees.

Be sure to check out West Metro Mommy Reads to enjoy all of the other offerings for Saturday Snapshot.

Happy Saturday!

  1. I am a huge fan of trees and while winter is not my favorite season, some of the trees are gorgeous.

  2. Well… I’ve seen lots of snow but not enough old trees in my area. So, this is fine with me. Nice job!

  3. Very pretty Fran. We drove back from Buffalo last week, and we saw lots of trees like that. Skeletal with a light layer of freshly fallen snow. It was really beautiful.

  4. I love how branches look against the backdrop of winter, or any season. Thanks for sharing…and for visiting my blog.

  5. It’s the middle of summer here, so I see LOTS of snow in your picture!!
    Bare trees have their own special majestic beauty though don’t they ?

  6. The snow does define the lines of the tree branches, doesn’t it? Looks like a fine ink drawing!

  7. I can imagine these trees are beautiful when they aren’t snow covered (I’m ready for this snow to go!)

  8. It’s funny how often a picture looks quite different to what we see. Like Brona, I see lots of snow.
