compare and contrast

This is a bend on the trail that is a favorite of mine because of the stately birch trees--and the fact that it marks a half way point on my walk.
On the right is how it looked in late winter before the leaves appeared. . .and much greener in early June. It is a lovely spot to look up at the sky in any season and once in awhile a deer will be hiding in the dense undergrowth.
See more sky views at Skywatch Friday.

Note to self:
Smile first, ask questions later.

What a difference in those two shots. I love the greenery, but there is also something appealing in the winter scene. Nice contrast.

It is always neat to see the contrast between the seasons on the same view.

Your birches are just gorgeous!

Laura said...

it is always so interesting to compare the same view at different seasons...both so lovely in their own way.

Beautiful trail to walk, - such a difference between the warm blue of a summer sky and the wintry paleness of the winter sky.

Glennis said...

Amazing how the fresh green leaves make such a difference. Both are nice but spring is lovely.

Bare branches or green; a blue sky enhances them.

A very nice compare and contrast. Both are beautiful. Different feelings for two different seasons.
