1/27/2016 - Outdoor Wednesday - #368 - Solitary Tree




Howdy Folks!   If you would like to view Outdoor Themes click here: http://asoutherndaydreamer.blogspot.com/.  Thank you Susan for being our hostess.




"I frequently tramped eight or ten miles through the deepest snow to keep an appointment with a beech-tree or a yellow birch, or an old acquaintance among the pines."
~ Henry David Thoreau

To tell you the truth, I don't tramp eight or ten miles through snow but I do walk a long way for me through snow, ice and frozen sand to get a photograph of this tree by Lake Michigan.  

Gray days and more gray days but somehow I get used to them. I stopped wondering when the sun will shine again here because I know that the sun is shining somewhere in the world.

  1. I would not like your weather. I love the bright sunshine and clear days. However, in your part of the world snows do come.

  2. For us who are not familiar with the winter landscape, it looks so drab, surreal, sad, dead, and i can't imagine there is life there. But of course, i can also see the beauty, amazing beauty. But it really is beyond me how animals really manage to live in such harsh conditions.
