Seeing the forest and the trees

Because I worked a week ago Saturday I got to take a different day off to balance things out; I opted for today, giving me a 3-day weekend. So for the third day running I was able take my time and look around when Kaylee and I were out walking. And as happened Saturday and Sunday, the result is a broad assortment of pictures. To start things off, a couple of examples of spalted wood:

Some more fungus pics:

Vermont's version of driftwood:

Looking up at a dead tree just in back of my parents' place:

A stump with a truckload of shoots growing around the edges:

I liked the effect of the red branches of the brambles crisscrossing the landscape:

Finally, Kaylee waiting patiently for me to stop taking photos and catch up to her:


  1. The one looked like a large, scary crown. Cool pics!

    Thank you—I'm glad you enjoyed them!

    Believe it or not, when I initially spotted the stump I also thought it looked like a crown. Glad to know I'm not alone. ;)

  3. Kaylee looks like a bear in this one.

  4. Kaylee doesn't look like a bear, she looks like the illustrations of Good Dog Carl.

    She does have a rather "so, what are we waiting for?" air about her.
