Bark on Fire

Passing by a young river birch, I noticed that its bark was peeling off.

The late afternoon sun turned the loose bark into tongues of fire running up and down the branches.

Or is it a papyrus scroll holding ancient secrets to be deciphered?

    Lovely images. Not often you catch them at that tender stage when the light still passes through them. All my images of peeled birch bark are just white on one side, brown on the other!

    I enjoy backlighting, but it never had occurred to me that you could backlight bark. It’s a beautiful photo, and very unusual.

    Having caught up with some of your blog posts, I’m impressed with how you turn things that others might find irrelevant and mundane into a vivid portrait by prose. Looking forward to more
