The revisitation isn't nearly as good as the original, but interestingly enough, it's 9 years and a day later. I'll give you the better picture first. This was Feb. 4, 2009.
I hate to tell you that an autumn olive could produce beauty, but this is indeed an old autumn olive tree. The reason it's worth revisiting is that seeing this particular shadow is not always a sure thing. The snow needs to be fairly deep. It was not quite deep enough today to create that circular effect.
The sun needs to be bright, which it wasn't quite. And, I have to be where this tree is when all those things happen, at the correct time of day. Today, I was there, and the other parts were close. But, clearly the other picture is much better.
It was a beautiful day. Blue sky and not as much wind. The temperature was only 13 degrees, but it didn't feel too bad. I skied all four hills.
In other news: I cleared the driveway, worked all day on that freelance job, and managed to write two chapters in The Hitchhiker. Not bad.
