Winter Trees VI

The idea for a series of folios celebrating winter trees had been with me for a long, long time — since my earliest days in photography. At long last, in 2008, the series commenced. The intention was to produce one folio each year. This year, Boreas (the Greek God of Winter) must have been feeling particularly spry. This is the first of three folios photographed and produced from a singular and spectacular morning storm.

This folio is a rare project for me — images presented in full color. Three elements combined on this rare and beautiful morning to promt me to color: the flag, the orange lamp light, and the few remaining fall leaves on the branches of a few of the trees. There is something about a small splash of color in the context of all the new and still falling white snow! In particular, the fast-falling snowflakes in front of the flag created a "bombs bursting in mid-air" sort of feeling that I thought was simply marvelous. I know this will likely only appeal to my fellow Americans, but I couldn't resist.

Here is a close-up of the flag.
