looking at trees

I had a discussion with my brother this week about colors of trees and he see's grey like I do. Hubby see's reds and orange and green and Jon and I were astounded as I always am about the different ways to see. Switchsky has said to press your nose against a tree and see the colors that way, but lately I have to put my glasses on to do that.

Anyway, I was playing with a photograph that I took when It was snowing out and the trees were very dark.

A bit of color enhancement and it want to this.

Now I can see the colors, now perhaps I'll try to draw them.

I'm always looking past the leaves to see what might be in the branches. In Dallas, on the medians of the robes, entire worlds live in the shrubs that most people don't even notice. Ok, it's mostly sparrow world and mouse world, with a giant dove every now and then, but it's still a world somehow apart from the bustle of the city.
