Sunday Scenes 3/11/12

I loved the gnarled roots on this tree.

In the photograph above, I was struck how the oranges were clinging to the bare branches. Every tree surrounding this one had leaves on it, and this was the only one that was bare but for the oranges.

Skies, Books, Tidbits, Shabbat 3/9/12

The photographs above were taken at an orange tree orchard. The contrast of the white architecture within the orchard and the sky background attracted me. One was taken on Monday, and one was taken on Wednesday.
