I am a weather junkie. I love spring, summer, fall, and winter. Especially winter. Bare trees get me going and while others are thinking about spring and rebirth, I love seeing the structures of the trees that are hidden by their summer leaves. The shapes, twists, colors — especially after a rain when the wood turns darker and the earthy colors come in trunks and branches come alive.
