Fallen Giants

After a fresh snowfall, I love to venture out snowshoeing into the forest. The blanket of snow, often a foot deep, magnifies the stillness. It also makes abstract forms and shapes out of decaying matter lying on the forest floor. I was drawn to this scene by the strong lines and composition that had been formed by these fallen hemlocks. I felt a little sad about the demise of such strong beautiful trees. But the resourcefulness of nature demands that the death of a tree transforms into a cozy winter nest for small animals.
