Challenge #2 in the Eclectic series. Hosted by Ro13.
Challenge has finished
After the colors of fall fade away, we are left with what appears to be the skeleton of the tree...not very becoming...or is it? With the bare tree as the subject (no people or animals) look for the beauty of textured bark, gracefully twisting limbs or gnarly knots. Close ups are fine!
