Our topic this week was Nature. It wasn't the best time of year to photograph nature, so we waiting for today to go on an adventure and find at least an lake or something to photograph. God heard my prayers and blessed us with a beautiful day. As we pulled up to the park and sun was shinning it was perfect. We, Erica and I, wandered around and enjoyed the afternoon. I photographed a few trees and a the lake that still had a thin layer of ice on it, but I settled on this image. The texture of a birch tree I think is so cool, the trunks stand out with their white hue and its rough feel, I think they are just cool trees. So I could resist sharing the texture with you. Enjoy.
