Such lovely old tree trunks, Nature's own art. I love how your processing has brought out the textures - the lovely details in the bark and the shadows on the snow... wonderful painterly image!
Sorry to hear about the results of the storm for you... the loss of all your fall colours as the leaves froze. Sad year all round it seems. Very interesting that you rarely loose power in Colorado & yet it often happened in the east... it has definitely been all about the trees here this time, although often it is ice building on the power lines & then the wind swinging them til they break. We are lucky here though, usually not a problem and if so, it's fixed within a few hours at the most. Let's hope it stays that way, one never knows what's coming next these days... :)
