Winter scenery after the snow

Ball field in winter

The overnight snow creates images in black and white, and the camera further enhances it with B&W capture. During the summer, the South Lebanon ball fields would be teeming with kids and parents playing America’s game, baseball. But, the winter gives the fields time to rest and soak in the moisture from melting snow. The bleachers and bench seats wait for the crowds to return.

Rocky Mountain forest

There is something about pine trees with straight trunks and few branches near the ground. The lines reach straight to the sky, towering over the surroundings.

Barn decorations

To think that a barn only houses equipment or livestock is to not understand the farm mentality, for the barn is also an easel for landscapes and art. It is a place to display nick-knacks and things from the past. Barn siding is a blank canvas waiting for the artist.

Leaves on a spring-fed pool of water

The drought continues, nearly six inches behind normal, and the streams are drying up except for those fed by a spring somewhere above the pool. Autumn leaves caress the surface, fallen from high above, the end of life as a leaf and soon to be compost.
