the veins and capillaries of trees

form a net
to bear the weight of new snow.

Sorry about the mess up there.
What I wanted to say was--- were you making snow angels when you took this shot?

Kate said...

The web of life, perhaps, waiting for new life and spring.

What a brilliant image and post. You have the mind of a poet!

Did you get hit with a bunch of snow, too? Lovely tangled web you wove!

BTW, we didn't get any snow. Yet.

Bare trees have their own beauty as seen in this wonderful shot.

Waiting for the snow to fall, branches are making a beautyful gazebo..

Gorgeous image, like Birdmans comment, well were you? I'd love to be making snow angels in the snow right now. Hope you have super weekend Brattcat.

The title couldn't be better! And what a lovely shot this is.

Sharon Creech said...

Love your angle, looking up at the graceful branches.

you are funny, my friends. i am well past my snow angel days. the will is still there and i might be able to get down on the ground but getting back up again would be a definite challenge. and then i'd be soaking wet from messing around in the embrace of snow. no, birdman, i simply pointed my camera straight up and shot.

Nicely done, brattcat. The angle you used creates a fascinating image. As Mr. Hickock says, you have the mind of a poet.
