Tree love

Why am I so fascinated by trees in winter? I like trees with leafs on them too, but not as much as I like them without. There's something so beautifully desolate about them that I just can't resist.

When I encounter a beautiful leafless tree I just have to take a picture of it:

Sometimes even the shadow of it's branches is enough to get me all swept away:

And if there's a bonus of black birds, well, that's just enough to make my day:

But I'm not too choosy, branches without birds will do fine as well:

And as if the outside world does not offer enough barren trees, I need to make some of my own too:

Conclusion: a life can never have too many trees! ;-)
