Frosty Fruit

My interest in detailed landscapes and foreground objects was influenced by my work. Teaching the identification of woody plants – trees, shrubs and vines – requires it. Close examination of leaves, twigs, buds, flowers, fruit and bark is a critical step in the deductive process of identifying plants in the field. Now hiking with a camera rather than students, that interest persists.

With the exception of the rose fruit (late October snowstorm), these photos were taken in December and January.

  1. I really like these! I have a couple of detailed landscapes taken while flyfishing in MI. These little life vignettes are a prize!
