A Lake Superior Birch-ABC WEDNESDAY "B"


A battered young birch
Resists the pounding huge waves
Standing tall and proud.

    1. I've never thought of tree images in quite that way before since I dislike winter weather so much; gives me a different perspective but it's hard to be positive when it is currently -10 degrees, and that's not even counting the wind chill factor!

  8. I haven't seen Lake Superior in years. Birch trees were always one of my favorites (perhaps because they're so easily identifiable).
