My submittal goes back to the unusually snowy winter we 'enjoyed' in this last season, the day 27-December 2010, the view being outside our front door the morning after the storm. Granted, the snow accumulation (15 in/38 cm) is so pure here, a sheet of frozen precipitation that looks beautiful under the blue sky despite very windy and cold conditions.
The wheelchair railing is where some of the wood sits. The dark stain actually highlights the grain of the wood, as it stands out against the snowy blanket that covers the ground...Naturally, the bare trees define 'wood' quite well, too.
Thanks to Tina for this great meme!
