This was taken on a frigid morning from the front porch of our house in Wisconsin. The rising sun was just touching the trees and hills across the valley and lighting up the trunks of the birch trees in the bottomland. The skein of branches in front of the house creates a delicate lacework at this time of year, opening up in unexpected places to provide glimpses of the valley beyond. In summer this is a wall of green -- there's much to be said for the layered texture of a winter view!
