i like the horizontal textures seen in the bark, Mary.
Mary MacADNski: Most birch have this feature to varying degrees.

It is the wrong day for Boat Friday, Mary...see, I am not yet senile...
Mary MacADNski: We have all winter to build a birch bark canoe, then show it on the boat Friday. I have already stained some trees in preparation.
With Elizabeth's aspens today, Mary, and your birches, I'm a happy camper. Two of my favorite trees in the whole wide world! smile

You never go wrong with birches, Mary. These trees are so wonderful.
I always like that you do the B&W and the coloured version.

That b&w is excellent and your optimistic wit is what is needed on a Monday smile
Beautiful trees that look good in both mediums.
They are an attractive tree

Umm... do you mean were going t built a boat with the wood from the trees? I always have liked the bark on the birch.
birch trees are the most common tree that is not an evergreen up here Mary... love your selective focus on the left tree... your depth of field shows up better in colour but i like both images equally....petersmile
Thanks for explaining...
I think you mean, with a lot of work! Nice shot!
Ha! Very funny, Mary! Both of these versions are beautiful!
