Valley Views: Local photographers aim their cameras outdoors
BENDING BIRCH TREES
Bay Road, Amherst
Photograph and text by Karen Lemoine of Amherst
This scene from last winter reminded me of the Robert Frost poem about birch trees bent over by the weight of the snow. It mirrored the mood of many people before and during this storm. Moods will lighten and spirits will spring back like birches relieved of their snowy burden once the sun comes out and melts it away. This image was captured with a DSLR and a wide angle lens.
