I’ve started working on a new piece, some life drawing and thought it’s time to head out for a snowshoe. So King and I took our usual trail towards the beaver pond and decided to follow along the ridge that borders the pond.
I love the skeletal look the dead standing trees take on, standing like sentinels and took some photographs of stumps and deadheads.
There is lots of material here for painting. As we started the climb up the steep slope of the ravine, we came across interesting granite outcroppings and bedrock formations.
When we descended down the other side of the ravine and headed back home across the beaver pond we were anticipating a nice hot toddy to warm us up.
