My first impression is this is a good piece of art work: abstract, simple color, vertical trees with diagonal lines of mountain ridges and tree shadows. Just want to stand there enjoy the view or walk on the top trail.   Posted: 01/06/2020 11:57:30

I really enjoy seeing images like this -- not so much of a particular subject but rather something like a graphic design, an impression, an abstract. These look like they are either burned or dead pines. Against the white snow they offer a beautiful design. I enjoyed admiring this.   Posted: 01/07/2020 07:38:48

Oh my goodness!! I love all the lines. I can't decide if I want to follow them top to bottom or left to right. This is a beautiful shot displaying the delicate geometry found in nature. I love it!!   Posted: 01/12/2020 16:28:49

Thanks John, Mike, and Nancie. Indeed this was a grove of burned out pines. Sad but visually stunning.   Posted: 01/17/2020 05:29:48
