There's a large wetland area which had the only open water. It was congested with ducks, Canada Geese and a few swans. There are cottonwood and alder trees here. Their willowy young branches painting the gray skies with a cheerful promise of leaves and nesting opportunities for the migratory birds.
|I took these crude photos with my cell phone. They remind me of the French Impressionist painters Alfred Sisley and Camille Pisarro|
|the white trees in the middle distance are coated with hoarfrost|
|branches are festooned with fine dendritic ice crystals|
|I did do one drawing of the young trees. I need to return to this spot.|
