Madi: Sunrise and Sycamore

Mom is the best assistant, so I'm giving her blog privileges today.
She has some pretty pictures to show you.

Some say winter is the dull, drab and dreary

As you can see from the below pictures, I found some beautiful color.

Sunrise December 16, 2009.


A gorgeous color picture of a Sycamore tree at Pullen Park in Raleigh. I pass this tree every day of the year. It is huge and very old. In the winter, the bark of the Sycamore is white.
Taken December 16, 2009...first sunny day we've had in about a week.

Please click on it for a better view.


Black and white effect of the same Sycamore Tree.

Both pictures are stunning.

Thanks Madi it is my pleasure to be your assistant.

  19. Gorgeous sunrise. I love your photos of the Sycamores, they are beautiful trees. We have quite a few of them here. In fact I just recently learned we have the largest London Plane Sycamore in the state here in town.

    Very nice of Madi to give you blog privileges today. Miss Cindi sometimes lets me blog as well.

    Hugs & Purrs,
    Judy and Miss Cindi
