Because today is a holiday, I slept in and walked my dog in the daylight instead of the dark. This is a street where I walk. There is frost on the sidewalk and the remnant of a snow pile left by the snowplow. Even though the sun is shining, the air is cold.
Here are frosted leaves on the frosted sidewalk.
As a composition, this picture is unbalanced, blank on one side, crowded on the other. But it shows buds on the tree and how blue and clear the sky is.
When I got home from the walk, here I found my contorted filbert, which also has buds starting. I love that you see the curly branches, and then the curly branch shadows on the wall.
