Photo Hunt: Trees

This week’s Photo Hunt theme is “Trees”. The trees, here in Ottawa, are only just coming into bud. It will be a while before we see leaves on them, and then blossoms. Much as IK don’t want to think of snow for another few seasons, I have chosen a couple of photos from a number of years ago — one before the snow fell and one after.

The first is along the route we often take home from Fellowship on Sundays or sometimes when I pick something up from work and we “take the scenic route” home.


The second was taken from the front stoop of our previous house. Unfortunately, the cedar, which provided a wind-break from wind that whistled down between our old house and the row we now live in, was cut down a few years ago. It was always lovely in winter, as well as kept our walkway and stoop SOMEWHAT freer from snowdrifts..

    Wow. These are stunning photos! The first one looks like something out of a fairy tale of sorts. The second one is just amazing and makes me cold just to look at it!

    My warmer tree photo is here.

    Nice to look at … from a safe and warm distance.

    Great shots, love all the snow, but the first shot is very dramatic. Really love the B/W!!! Happy weekend.

    Both photos are fantastic, though the first is a little spooky. Ditto with YTSL.

    Have a fabulous weekend!

    That first image is amazing — I still haven’t decided whether it is the negative or positive; the light is otherworldly. There’s nothing quite like the way snow drapes over evergreen. Nice choices for the theme today.

    The second photo is beautiful. The first photo looks… ghostly!
