the day the seasons changed

I can't remember seeing the change between winter and autumn being so clear before. Yesterday woke me to our first winter snow and yet the trees hadn't finished with their glorious gowns! I loved walking through the woods and spotting the odd birch tree shining through the others like golden fires.  These are a stunning group of silver birch in the old quarry... which I'm hoping don't get felled when they start using the site again.  Think I'll be painting birch and their yellow scatterings for a while yet.

What a lovely shot, that gold is is so bright against the snow. None of the white stuff down South yet, but it's turned very cold.
Looking forward to birch tree inspired work :-)
