Misty winter Backyard

Posted by
Ruthiebear (Titusville, NJ, United States) on 6 March 2013 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

On February 8 I posted of my backyard in fall. Today here it is in a winter shot. The treehouse looks like a big birdhouse. My hubby built it for our kids when they were young.
I value your comments.

I think the kids must have loved playing in the bird/treehouse. No doubt the next generation will enjoy it too.

Ha - I thought it was a big birdhouse! I thought to myself, "Sheesh - how big do the birds get in New Jersey?!?" Really cool treehouse, and the surreal colors work here, Ruthie!

Une lumière jaune remplace le brouillard et la neige a pris la place des feuilles depuis le mois dernier.

This image is like season trickery, I had to look for a while i just couldn't decide if it looked like a wintery scene or a scene with some cherry blossom everywhere :) a wonderful presentation Ruthie. And i DO like photography that makes me wonder.

I like everything about this photo Ruthie, the purple-ish hue gives it a surreal feeling and the sunlight gives off such a pretty yellow glow.... a beautiful setting..... a great place for kids to grow especially with that gorgeous treehouse. I love it!!

Your kids, I hope, realize how blessed they are to have such a talented engineer/architect/builder for a Dad. What fun that must have been for them! And what a great winter season photo - I really like how you processed it.

Judy aka L@dybug from Brooksville, FL, United States

This is a great shot and I liked seeing it in the fall also. What a unique playhouse your hubby built. I'm guessing there was a ladder on the tree for them to get up there. Now it's ready for grandchildren!

I laughed when reading Jules' comment, about the size of NJ birds. (No Jules, it's the mosquitoes that are huge in NJ.) ;D
