|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|According to the dictionary:|
A small, slender tree which rarely grows more than 15 metres tall. It has delicate, deciduous foliage.
Tamaracks were never small where I lived for 15 years, at the 3500 foot level of the Kettle Range. Some reached as high as 70 feet. They drop their needles in winter and regrow in spring making them an unusual, and beautiful tree for their type.
I had the good fortune to live in a remote wilderness cabin just beyond electricity and powered by solar. This view of the tamaracks was taken from, and framed by my kitchen window. slight reflction of the ancient glass is seen but hardly a distraction when viewed after a fresh fallen late winter snow.

A NATURAL frame. How wonderful.
Like I've been saying all along ... very original.
All your registers have been very original.
GREAT work Bob.
Best regards from Canada from Mario.
P.S. How are you coming with the 'sea-gull'? Do you want me to remove the excessive blue on it?

Gorgeous. Love to see snow (when I'm not in it.) The natural frame makes this image special! Kudos!
