This little lichen caught my eye. It seemed to somehow symbolize the ruggedness, persistence and primitive beauty of the area.
Your first photo makes me want to go there and walk the trail--I have to say, I've not seen snow like that in a least a year!

I like the open area...and love your description of what the little lichen symbolizes. I love rugged beauty.

Thanks...it is still an odd entry, but I like that one much better--I love the look of the aged wood.

Very nice composition you've got there, hava. ...and the subject matter doesn't hurt either.

Thank you....I crossed a small slew while it was frozen over and wandered around on an island I hadn't been on in probably 20 years!
I noticed the seed heads and laid on my belly so they's be included in the shot.

See how far you will go to capture a picture? I'm so impressed.

I needed the outing. We've snow up here in Michigan and I've been inside for waaaaay to long.
They don't call it cabin fever for nothing you know.....Twas you that gave me the incentive to go forth. Thank you

T'was me?!

Despite almost no snow and a lot of temperatures above freezing, I didn't get out into the yard as much as I should have. Today, however, I went out and did more than just walk the yard! Yay! Work is good for the soul.
