One of my favorite things to photograph when I’m on a hike is reflections of trees in the water. I love the painterly quality, the way the reflection mixes with the bottom of the pond, and the wavy shapes that ripples in the water make.
The nature preserve I’ve been exploring lately has a lot of Yellow Birch Trees. I didn’t know a lot about this tree, so I’ve been doing some research and learning more about them. Before the leaves have developed in the early Spring, the bark is the most interesting part of the tree. The horizontal lenticels and the peeling bark were fun to photograph.
