Colors are the smiles of nature

Today's post title courtesy of Leigh Hunt.

Another overcast day here, so I spent some of our morning walk trying to capture some different bits of color in an otherwise monochromatic landscape:

I noticed this interesting bit of growth at the base of a tree:

And the rest of the trunk was kinda interesting as well:

A lone birch tree that caught my eye:

These next two are of the same grouping of birch trees, but I liked both pics for different reasons: the first because of the framing effect of the two foreground trees, the second because I thought the color of the sky made for an interesting contrast with the deep blue of the mountains.

Last, but certainly not least, Kaylee pics:


  1. You're really getting into this - every day, more photos, and all of them wonderful!

    I hope you're enjoying yourself as much as I am.

  2. I love, love, love the birch trees framed by the trees in the foreground! Well done!

  3. Very nice! I always like birch trees as photographic subjects.
