Those trees have such lovely silouettes, I can see why you were drawn to the variations.

Thanks, Berrybird! :-)

I do like them. I like tree silhouettes in general! I like groups of three, too. And I love the variations.

I liked the original b/w best actually but I liked them all. The last one reminded me of one time when I was visiting W in Calif. in 1994 or so when she lived in a little cabin-like house in a teeny town called Blue Lake. I was walking along a nearby river, and across the river all the trees looked different pastel colors!! I KNOW I didn't imagine it!! Of course I didn't have my camera with me -- went back to get it (about 1/2 mile each way) and of course it had faded by then. I know it COULD happen because of the way the treetops turn red and orange in certain light, even here in town.

One time I saw those lights in the woods like Annie Dillard saw -- that was here in Jackson in an area that's since been developed. Probably not as dramatic as hers, but I did see something like that. I should look in my old diaries and see if I can find what I wrote because I can't remember much about it anymore.

Anyway your pictures reminded me of that stuff!

I like these a lot especially the orange purple horizon version second from the top.

Thanks, Pam, Gail and Sam! One of the values of variations is that everyone has different tastes, LOL! :-D

Yes, it was intended to be a compliment. :-)

Pepette is my son's rabbit. She was supposed to be tiny but she is huge now. She is very funny. She loves her skateboard!
