Brown and Bare

With the wet weather we have been having, people have been keeping themselves indoors. Fine by me! When I went on a hike last weekend, we saw less than a half dozen people on a trail where you normally see a lot of traffic. It was nice being in the quiet woods with only the sounds of your footsteps interrupting the stillness. The forest looks so different in the winter. The most prominent features are the brown trunks, and everything is so bare.

  1. I really love all the bare branches, and living on the gulf coast with a lot of live oaks that don't lose their leaves, they can be harder to find. beautiful photo!

  2. Beautiful Bare Boughs.
    I truly love the silence of the forest.
    We sure could use some of your wet weather. Very dry here in the central part of California.

  3. It's so true that it's almost spooky being in a forested area all alone - I'm heading out there soon to take the dog for a walk. I hope I don't run into anyone!

  5. Silence is golden as the saying goes.

  6. That's a gorgeous shot. I had the same idea - bare trees - only mine are oaks. Enjoy the week!

  7. Living in the Seattle area I can really relate to the brown and bare...

  8. I was admiring this shot earlier on Facebook, love the bare trees with their colorings. Gorgeous shot!

  9. Beautiful forest scene, it is nice to have an uncrowded trail. Have a happy day!

  10. I love hearing the crunch beneath my feet and the wind in my hair. Beautiful picture.

  11. The brown bare bark looks lovely.

  12. A beautiful place to walk and meditate.

  13. A lovely area to hike in!
