I couldn’t resist taking a few pictures after our first snow. The snow laden branches highlight the branch architecture in a wonderful way. Any guesses what kind of tree this is? I’ll tell you at the end of the entry.
The sun had set behind broken clouds when I took this picture. The snowy limbs give this hillside a fresh look. The texture of the crowns is what captured my attention.
The first image is a red oak. I noticed some beautiful snow covered bur oak on my way home, one of my favorite trees. They look much different than the red oak, and I wish I had stopped so you could see the difference.
