At dawn today, I walked out to and around our park that sits beside the river bank.

The morning was beautiful with no wind and only -2°C. It was perfect walking weather.

Along the park trail is one of my favourite trees. I’ve photographed it at many angles and in every season except winter.

This branch extends out to the river and is always intriguing to me. I don’t know what the appeal is, but I smile each time I see it.

“Silence can always be broken by the sound of footsteps walking over frozen ground
In winter when the melancholy trees
Stand abject and let their branches freeze”
