Oak and Maple

 
white oak

I've been spending most of my time for the past few days writing. I've been on a roll, and want to take advantage of it. I am liking the way Paddy Plays in Dead Mule Swamp is going so far. I think it has a lot more depth than the first one, without being a difficult read. That just means I haven't been thinking about nice pictures outside very much. But I have these two pictures of trees from the past couple of weeks. They sing to me!

The one above is a white oak, and the one below is a maple.

Really these trees without leaves are dead. However some leaves can be still seen on the oak tree.

Hi BVC- Not dead at all. It's winter here. Deciduous trees lose their leaves in winter and grow new ones in the spring! Come back Sept-Nov and see the lovely colors the leaves turn in the fall.

rainfield- how did I miss your comment? Sorry! Yes, they are naked, but they have a beauty all their own during that time of rest.
