Remnants of Pickerel Lake







Remnants of Pickerel Lake






 
I took a walk on the new ice last week.















The early evening sun throws long shadows.














Long-dead Tamaracks give character to this shallow lake.
















Years of weathering, wind, and sun enhance the wood grain.














 
Long, tapered branches twist and persist.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
How much longer will this Tamarack stand?
