Fitting that I am writing this today as most of Southern Ontario Canada is under a ‘winter storm warning’. The snow-covered trees in this black and white fine-art image are unique in its shape and gesture. I love the form of this old snow-covered oak tree. Some oaks varieties live only 80 years, while others are living as long as 500 to 600 years. I can’t be sure of the age of this majestic snow-covered tree, but it has a feel of ancient old and wise member of the community. It stands proud over the farm property near Wilberforce, Ontario and I am sure it has for generations.
The black and white photograph conversion adds the appearance of delicate detail in the tree’s branches. If you look at this image of snow-covered pine trees, they have a real wintery feel, but not the majestic feel of this old oak tree.
