As Lovely As A Tree


I love trees in Winter.  "Naked Trees" I call them.  There is something about the beauty of the form.  Bare of leaves and visible.  It's like lace.  Like architecture.  As much as I love the Autumn (it is still my favorite season), I can't help but look forward to the leaves falling and revealing the natural beauty of the tree's structure which has been hidden beneath them all summer. 


I prefer winter and fall, when you feel the bone structure of the landscape - the loneliness of it, the dead feeling of winter. Something waits beneath it, the whole story doesn't show. ~Andrew Wyeth

  1. Absolutely I love the structure and lack of color in winter trees, and you quoted one of my favorite artists...landscape in winter is barren, and yet I notice more. The burst of color you see the rest of the year doesn't interfere with your eye. :D

  2. Sort of the ol' "don't judge a book by it's cover" concept, isn't it?
