How it got this way…

…is a total mystery to me…it’s got to be one of the creepiest-looking tree trunks I’ve ever seen!

After the light, fluffy snow of the 28th…

…I found myself back on Rogers Avenue, clicking off shots of the glittery deer and the ornaments on the bare tree.

The doe and two fawns has a bit more shape to them, yet the glittery mirrors continued to shine.

All that glisters was not silver...much of it was snow, as on this lone ornament.

The only thing missing was a little sunshine, to make the snow sparkle!

I liked the shot of the lone ornament so much, I decided to ‘play’, turning it into a black and white image, then Lassoing the color ornament and placing it over its B/W counterpart.  The leaves I Lassoed individually, and colored them with a low-opacity reddish-gold.  Turned out rather nice, didn’t it, and somewhat Oriental in feeling.
