Ice & Pine

We recently had the first snow of 2016 in the Portland/Vancouver area, and in true Pacific Northwest fashion, finished the storm off with a round of freezing rain.  Driving to work and around town I noticed many trees fallen and limbs down – arborists were busy today I’m sure!

On the college campus where I work, we have a monstrous redwood tree that towers over our administration building – it’s a giant, and I’m grateful with each wind storm that it doesn’t lose more branches than it does or topple over in the rain-soaked ground we often have!

Below the tree today was a remnant of frozen rain ice pellets mixed with snow and a very cool texture of cedar twigs and cones over the top. Technically, a cedar is not a pine like my title suggests, but it definitely made for a great Christmas season photo!  I’ve cropped these into desktop and iPhone sizes for a nature / winter background offering – enjoy!
