Theo Bosboom - Frosted beech tree


Winter in the Belgian Ardennes can be really harsh, especially on the high plateau near Baraque Michel. On one of my trips there I discovered this frosted beech tree, that provided a little bit of colour in a furthermore white world. I was attracted by the green moss on the bark and the red brown leaves.

    Wow! It's so magical. I love those tiny branches covered with snow in combination with vibrant red-brown leaves ...

    I'd like to see it really big on a wall - I get the impression that the small web format doesn't quite do justice to subtle nuances and structures. Still a very nice shot as seen here, though!
