This photograph of a group of paper birch trees in the deep snow – in the arboretum, of course, also appears in a separate blog post along with others taken on the same occasion. However, the more I look at it, the more pleased I am by the image that appeared at the end of the day.
Birch trees are the only tree species that grows naturally in all of the Canadian provinces and territories … albeit the ones in Nunavut are a specialized dwarf birch tree just a few inches high.
This image also works well in monochrome …
It works in monochrome, but that touch of colour says there is life in the wintry white.
